Ukraine on Monday, Oct. 31, accused Russia of another “massive attack” on the country’s energy infrastructure, after officials announced power and water supply cuts in the capital.
“Russian terrorists have again launched a massive attack against electricity installations in a number of Ukrainian regions,” said the deputy head of Ukraine’s presidency, Kyrylo Tymoshenko.
At least five explosions were heard in the Ukrainian capital between 8:00 am (0600 GMT) and 8:20 am, according to AFP journalists.
Kyiv had already been hit on October 10 and 17 by drones.
After Monday’s blasts, mayor Vitali Klitschko said in a Telegram message: “An area of Kyiv is without electricity and certain areas without water following Russian strikes.”
Monday’s attack on the Ukrainian capital comes after Russia pulled out of a landmark agreement that allowed vital grain shipments via a maritime safety corridor.
