Power outages in Kyiv and Sumy

At the same time, widespread power outages are occurring in Kyiv and Sumy. According to the mayor of Kyiv, Vitali Klitschko, at least half of Kyiv is currently without power.

“Due to a massive missile attack, at the behest of the national electricity company Ukrenergo, the energy industry initiated emergency blackouts across Ukraine. In particular, in the capital. This is a necessary step to balance the power system and prevent equipment accidents. Stabilization downtime schedules are not currently in effect! In the capital, at least half of the customers are without electricity,” said the mayor of Kyiv.

Alongside, the governor of Sumy, Dmytro Zhivitsky reported on Telegram that they will take place emergency power outages in the area as a result of “enemy attacks on Sumi and the surrounding area”.

Andriy Yermak, the president’s chief of staff, tweeted that Moscow responded to Volodymyr Zelensky’s speech “with a new missile strike.”

It is recalled that earlier today the Ukrainian president presented his terms for the end of the war in Ukraine to the G20 leaders and called on them to support his plan.
