Ukraine’s power grid has been “stabilised” following mass Russian strikes on the country that in particular targeted energy infrastructure, causing power and hot water cuts, national energy operator Ukrenergo said Thursday, Oct.13.

“The introduction of scheduled emergency blackouts is currently not being planned… This became possible, first of all, thanks to the fact that Ukrenergo and Oblenergo experts stabilised the energy supply in all regions of Ukraine,” Ukrenergo chief Volodymyr Kudrytskyi said on Facebook.

“We withstood what was probably the largest missile attack on energy infrastructure in history,” Kudrytskyi added.

“Whether there will be (supply) restrictions in the future depends primarily on whether there will be new shelling and destruction,” he said.


Russia for two days pummelled Ukraine with missiles, damaging energy facilities nationwide, in attacks that President Vladimir Putin said were retaliation for a deadly explosion at a Crimea bridge.

Kyiv in response called on Ukrainians to limit their electricity usage as blackouts and hot water cuts hit villages and towns across the country.
