Klitschko said, “This is a necessary step to balance the power system and avoid equipment accidents.
“Schedules of stabilisation shutdowns are currently not in effect!
“In the capital, at least half of the customers are without electricity.”
European expert Sergej Sumlenny said this “terrorist” attack could have happened due to “delays in deliveries of Western air defence systems.”
Ukraine’s President Volodymyr Zelensky said that the power is off “in many cities” across the country as Russia mainly targetted the energy infrastructure.
Zelensky vowed “we will survive” following the huge air strike.
