Russian strikes leave 10 million Ukrainians without power as temperatures plummet By Jack Guy, Yulia Kesaieva, Jo Shelley, Denis Lapin and Tim Lister, CNN Updated 9:21 AM EST, Fri November 18, 2022
Kyiv, Ukraine CNN — More than 10 million Ukrainians were without power after another wave of Russian strikes on critical infrastructure, as concerns over Ukraine’s power supply grew as winter began to set in across the country.
Temperatures have plummeted in Ukraine this week, putting the country’s power grid under extra strain as engineers try to repair damage caused by fresh Russian missile strikes, according to state energy company Ukrenergo.
“Due to a dramatic drop in temperature, electricity consumption is increasing daily in those regions of Ukraine where power supply has already been restored after massive missile strikes on November 15 on the energy infrastructure,” said Ukrenergo in a statement issued Friday. “This complicates the already difficult situation in the energy system.”
Ukrenergo said it was restricting the use of electricity in some areas as “a necessary measure to preserve the stability of the energy system,” and had teams “working around the clock to restore the damaged infrastructure in order to return light to Ukrainians.”
Russian missile strikes hit critical infrastructure in cities across Ukraine this week, as many parts of Ukraine, including the capital Kyiv, saw the first snowfall of the season on Thursday.
President Volodymyr Zelensky said in his nightly address Thursday that more than 10 million Ukrainians lacked electricity, and that most were in the Kyiv, Odesa, Vinnytsia and Sumy regions.
