Ukraine is suffering the biggest attack on the energy sector in two years of invasion

This morning saw the biggest attack on Ukraine’s energy sector in two years of war.

The bombing by Russian troops of the Dnieper hydroelectric power station in Zaporizhia and its dam – the largest in the country – has led to a power outage, which has left more than a million Ukrainians without electricity. In the affected areas, people are queuing to get water, including at gas stations, the traffic lights are not working and the subway is empty.

The Russian military fired 90 missiles and more than 60 drones in a large-scale attack a week after Kiev launched an offensive against Russia’s oil industry. This Friday, Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky called for more international pressure on a Vladimir Putin who, in his opinion, knows no borders. “Every terrorist attack carried out by Russia shows that global sanctions against the Putin regime remain inadequate.” “Every Russian missile these beasts use against our country contains components manufactured by companies outside Russia. “This has to stop and the world has the necessary influence.”says Zelensky.

After the wave of Russian attacks that have also destroyed other energy facilities such as Lviv, Odessa and Kharkov in the last few hours, Ukraine has started receiving energy support from neighboring countries such as Romania, Poland and Slovakia.

The head of European diplomacy, Josep Borrell, regrets on social networks that Russia is endangering the safety of the Zaporizhzhia nuclear power plant.
