Since October 10, Russia has been massively attacking energy infrastructure facilities across Ukraine, launching missiles and swarms of one-way attack drones.

In the latest massive strike, more than 50 missiles were fired, of which Ukraine’s air defenses downed 44.

Millions of household consumers and multiple enterprises have faced rolling blackouts due to destruction inflicted on energy infrastructure facilities across Ukraine.

Efforts to restore supplies are complicated by the need to import costly equipment. So far, at least 12 countries have agreed to supply or sell such equipment to Ukraine, according to Foreign Minister Dmytro Kuleba.
