Russian missile attacks damaged power generation and distribution facilities in eight regions of Ukraine.

"Today, Russian terrorists launched yet another massive missile attack on Ukraine. The main strike was directed against Ukraine's energy system. They tried to destroy it again. And again, they failed," Prime Minister of Ukraine Denys Shmyhal posted on Telegram.

According to the PM, the energy system remains intact.

"Temporary power outages are possible in some regions because generation and distribution facilities in eight regions were damaged," Shmyhal noted.

According to him, the energy headquarters and repair crews are working. Special attention is focused on the restoration of electricity supply in Kharkiv.

"Missile strikes also targeted civilian infrastructure. There are civilian casualties. The Russians must be punished for yet another crime," Shmyhal emphasized.
