    Russian missiles hit Ukraine's energy infrastructure in three regions, but power grid is functioning - Shmyhal

    December 5, 2022 - Oleksandr Panasiuk


      Russian missiles hit Ukraine's energy infrastructure in the Kyiv, Vinnytsia and Odesa regions during the latest attack on Monday, December 5, but despite this, the country's power grid is functioning. In some regions, emergency shutdowns are in place in order to balance the system and avoid accidents.

      Ukrainian Prime Minister Denys Shmyhal said this on Telegram, Ukrinform reports.

      "The terrorist country Russia tried to implement its criminal plan again - to plunge Ukraine into darkness and cold. Thanks to the heroic Ukrainian Armed Forces and air defense forces, enemy's plan failed once again. The country's power grid is functioning and remains intact. There were hits on energy facilities in the Kyiv, Vinnytsia, and Odesa regions," he wrote.

      He added that in some regions, emergency shutdowns had been used in order to balance the system and avoid accidents. Rescuers are already working to eliminate the consequences of the attack in order to restore light to every home, Shmyhal said.

      "Russia launched another massive missile attack on the anniversary of the signing of the Budapest Memorandum. They demonstrate to the world what a 'reliable' guarantor of security they are. So let us rely on the Ukrainian Armed Forces and our rescuers. We believe in our victory and a fair retribution for Russian terrorists," Shmyhal said.

      Russian invaders on Monday launched another missile attack against Ukraine, with some missiles hitting the country's infrastructure. President Volodymyr Zelensky said that Ukraine's air defense forces had shot down most missiles Russia fired on December 5.
