Russian army rained shells on Ukraine, many cities reached in darkness, people were forced to live in candlelight

Kyiv: Ukraine’s state power operator on Saturday announced a scheduled halt to power supply to Kyiv and seven other regions following Russia’s horrific attacks on energy infrastructure. The move comes as the Russian military continues to bomb Ukrainian cities and villages with missiles and drones, causing significant damage to power plants, water supplies and other infrastructure. Russia has denied that the drones used in Ukraine came from Iran. However, Iran’s Foreign Minister Hussein Amir Abdullahian for the first time on Saturday admitted to supplying a “limited number” of drones to Moscow ahead of the invasion.

The foreign minister claimed that Iran did not know whether its drones were used against Ukraine. He reiterated Iran’s commitment to stop the conflict. Ukraine’s sole operator of a high-voltage transmission line, Ukranergo, said in an online statement on Saturday that power supply would be suspended in the capital and the extended Kyiv region, as well as several surrounding areas including Chernihiv, Cherkasy, Zhytomyr, Sumy, Poltava and Kharkiv. .

Power supply will be more than six hours
The power supply will be stopped daily for “certain groups of consumers” “in accordance with a special program prepared by the operator of the distribution network for each area”, the statement said. The power supply is likely to be stopped for six more hours each day. Ukraine is grappling with power cuts and water supply disruptions as Russian military forces launched missile and drone strikes last month targeting the country’s energy infrastructure.

Meanwhile, Russian shelling continued in the early hours of Saturday in several areas of Ukraine. Dnipropetrovsk governor Valentin Regichenko said on Telegram that about 40 shells were fired overnight in the city of Nikopol. The Russian army targeted the city and its surrounding areas with heavy artillery.

In the south, Mykolaiv governor Vitaly Kim said on Telegram that shelling in rural areas damaged several houses but no casualties. The Russian army also fired missiles in the south-eastern Zaporizhzhya region. Russia occupies a large part of this region. Eight cities and villages, including Bakhmut, Adivka and Porkovsk, were bombed in the Donetsk region in the east. According to Ukraine’s presidential office, at least three civilians were killed and eight others were injured by Russian shelling in nine Ukrainian territories in the past 24 hours. Drones, missiles and heavy artillery were used in these attacks. According to the presidential office, Russian forces kidnapped a local civilian in the Russian-occupied Kherson region.
