In Kyiv, 3.5 lakh households lost power, 80% of households did not have water; Russia created panic in Ukraine with swift attacks3 min read
New Delhi: There is another big news in the midst of the ongoing war in Ukraine-Russia. Russia has launched a series of attacks on vital infrastructure in major Ukrainian cities and caused havoc in Ukraine, including the capital Kyiv. Due to these swift attacks by Russia, water and electricity supply has been disrupted in many cities including Ukraine’s capital Kyiv. In Ukraine, people have started yearning for water and most of the area is in darkness. It has been nine months since this war. Russia has stepped up its attacks, targeting power plants and other key infrastructure in Ukraine. Large parts of Ukraine are already facing power cuts as a result of Russia’s strategy.
Actually, now there is an outcry in Ukraine for electricity and water. Infrastructure in Kyiv has been attacked by Russia. Water supply has completely stopped in more than 80 percent of the households in Kyiv. Electricity of 3.5 lakh houses has also been affected. In this growing winter, it is no less than a cold one. The problem of drinking water is also arising. Russia’s defense ministry said in a statement that its forces “attacked Ukraine’s military command and energy systems with long-range air and water weapons.”

Meanwhile, 12 grain-laden ships left Ukrainian ports on Monday, despite Russian threats to reimpose a blockade that threatened a worldwide food crisis. Ukrainian Prime Minister Denis Shyamal said Russian missiles and drones targeted 10 Ukrainian territories and damaged 18 infrastructure, mostly power plants. He said the consequences of the attack could have been dire if the Ukrainian military had not shot down most of the Russian missiles. The Russian strikes are being seen as a retaliation for a drone strike by Ukraine on a Russian fleet in the Black Sea this weekend. Ukraine has denied allegations of these attacks.
Loud explosions were heard in several parts of the Ukrainian capital, Kyiv, early Monday. Several people preparing to go to work early in the morning received warning messages from the emergency department about missile strikes. During this period, sirens of the threat of air strikes continued for about three hours in the city. Kyiv Mayor Vitoli Kalitschko said the strikes caused power and water supply cuts in a part of the Ukrainian capital. He said that the water supply to about 80 percent of the people living in Kyiv has been disrupted. People have been asked to buy and store water from the nearest pump rooms and outlets.
Kalitschko said local officials were working to repair the plant that supplies electricity to nearly 3.5 million homes in the city. He said in a post on Telegram that water supply would be restored in some areas of Kyiv within three to four hours. The attacks came just before several top officials of his government, including Czech Prime Minister Petr Fiala, foreign, defense and interior ministers, arrived in Kyiv to show their support for Ukraine.
