According to the government in Kyiv, all thermal and hydroelectric power plants in the country have been damaged by Russian airstrikes on Ukraine’s power grid. Therefore, power outages are expected throughout the winter.
Ukraine’s eastern Donetsk region remains the most heavily fought. In his daily video address, Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky stressed that “the situation on the front lines in the main regions of Donbass – Bakhmut, Solidar, Marinka and Krymina – remains very difficult. There has been no place in these regions for a long time. It has not been done through shells.” And it was destroyed by fire. Rather, the occupiers destroyed the city of Bakhmut, which is another town in the Donbass that the Russian army burned and destroyed.”
