Three Russian strikes have hit a “power facility” in Kyiv, Ukrainian officials said on Tuesday. The attack on the unspecified energy facility comes just a day after deadly Russian drone strikes hit the Ukrainian capital. “Preliminarily, three hits on a power supply facility on the left bank of Kyiv,” Kyrylo Tymoshenko, the deputy head of the Ukrainian president’s office said in a statement published on social media. There were reports of the strikes causing several explosions and sending smoke rising over Kyiv.
The city’s mayor, Vitali Klitschko, said the attack targeted “critical infrastructure” and emergency workers were on their way. Meanwhie, the northern city of Zhytomyr was left without electricity and water supply after the Tuesday morning strikes, its mayor said. “There is currently no light or water in the city. Hospitals are on reserve (power) supplies,” Serhiy Sukhomlyn said on Facebook. Air raid warnings were sounded across Ukraine in the wake of fresh drone and missile attacks from Russia, reports said. On Monday, four people were killed in Kyiv due to a barrage of Russian attacks with so-called “suicide drones.”
