President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelensky said this in his video address, Ukrinform reports.
“The elimination of the consequences of another missile attack against Ukraine continues all day... Again, there are emergency shutdowns in addition to planned, stabilization ones. Currently, more than 10 million Ukrainians are without electricity,” Zelensky said.
According to him, most of them are in the Vinnytsia region, Odesa region, Sumy region and Kyiv.
“We are doing everything to normalize the supply,” the President said.
As Ukrinform reported, on November 17, DTEK's Executive Director Dmytro Sakharuk said that up to 40% of consumers are currently without electricity due to large-scale damage to energy facilities. In some areas, there will be no electricity supply for several days.
