On the morning of Monday Oct. 31, Russia launched another wave of missile attacks against Ukrainian critical infrastructure. The weapons targeted the power grid and knocked entire city districts offline. Kyiv Mayor Vitali Klitschko said some areas of the capital were left without electricity and 80 percent of Kyiv residents were left without a water supply.

“Currently, due to the emergency situation in Kyiv, 80 percent of consumers remain without water,” the city’s mayor Vitali Klitschko said on Telegram. “Engineers are also working to restore power to 350,000 homes in Kyiv that were left without electricity.”

Kyiv city authorities have asked citizens to stock up on water.

“Please stock up on water from the nearest pump rooms and points of sale. Specialists are doing everything possible to return water to the apartments of Kyiv residents,” stated an official message of the Kyiv administration.


The authorities said that there are 350,000 apartments in Kyiv that have been left without electricity due to Russian shelling. Engineers are working to restore the power supply.


According to Kharkiv mayor Ihor Terekhov, Russians hit a critical infrastructure facility the same morning, which disconnected power to the subway and ground transportation in Kharkiv.

“We have managed to launch the Kholodnohirsk-Zavodska line, and replaced trolleybuses and trams with buses,” he said.

According to Terekhov, the city is also having problems with its water supply. Power engineers and utility companies are working to eliminate the problem.
