Ukraine said Tuesday that more than seven million households had been left without electricity after a fresh barrage of Russian strikes targeted the country’s power grid.

“More than seven million subscribers are now cut off from electricity,” after 15 energy facilities across Ukraine were damaged by Russian strikes, deputy head of President Volodymyr Zelensky’s office, Kyrylo Tymoshenko, said on social media.

“Our power engineers are now doing everything to reconnect the power supply as soon as possible.”
