Ukraine’s infrastructure struggles continue following Russian airstrikes. Oleksandr Kharchenko, an advisor to Ukraine’s energy minister, said up to 40 percent of the national power grid had been severely damaged.
Ukraine’s energy minister is asking people to limit their electricity use, even as “heating season” begins. The country’s energy provider urged people to “charge everything” yesterday before enacting nationwide power cuts.
Russian airstrikes destroyed up to three powerplants on Wednesday. One attack came too close for comfort for TransWorld Radio Ukraine team leader Alexander Chmut.
“The electricity plant where two missiles hit is very close [to] where Alexander lives, like one kilometer away from his home,” Alenka Stephenson with TWR Europe says.
“He sent us a short message saying, ‘The war is getting closer. But the studio is supplied and without disturbance, so praise God for that.’”
