Massive power outagesin Ukraine following heavy Russian shelling
Attacks on Ukraine’s energy infrastructure, includingpower plants and heating plants, have denied millions of people access to heat, electricity, and water. Energy infrastructure is under constant fire from Russian missiles and drones from the capital Kyiv in the north to Dnipro in central Ukraine and Odessa in the south. The shutdown of all four nuclear power plants at the end of November 2022 in Rivne, South Ukraine, and Khmelnytsky NPPs, emergency protection was triggered, working without feeding power into the grid. Energy infrastructure in the Ukraine can not be recovered for many years to come.
