“Emergency services and energy workers are working on the spot, overcoming the consequences of numerous airstrikes. There is no threat of a breakthrough [of the dam].

“The situation at the station dam is under control.”

Ukraine’s energy minister Herman Halushchenko said that electricity was cut off due to the bombing raid.

He added, “This is the largest attack on Ukraine’s energy sector in recent times.”

More than a million people have been left without power after the strikes on the energy facilities.

Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky said, “Russia launched over 60 “Shahed” drones and nearly 90 missiles of various types at Ukraine.

“The world sees the Russian terrorists’ targets as clearly as possible: power plants and energy supply lines, a hydroelectric dam, ordinary residential buildings, and even a trolleybus. Russia is at war with people’s everyday lives.

“My condolences to the loved ones of those killed by this terror. In all of the cities affected by the attack, the necessary services have already been deployed.

“Rescuers, power engineers, regional and local authorities, police and utility services are helping people. Nobody will be left without assistance. Electrical power is being restored.

“Recovery in Kharkiv and its region, Zaporizhzhia, Sumy, Poltava, Dnipro, Odesa, Khmelnytskyi and its region, Vinnytsia, and Ivano-Frankivsk has begun as of last night.

“Russian missiles have no delays, unlike aid packages for Ukraine. “Shahed” drones have no indecision, unlike some politicians. It is critical to understand the cost of delays and postponed decisions. Patriot systems must protect Kharkiv and Zaporizhzhia; air defense is required to protect people, infrastructure, homes, and dams.

“Our partners know exactly what is needed. They can definitely support us. These are necessary decisions. Life must be protected from these savages from Moscow.”
