Kyiv energy facility hit by strikes, Ukrainian officials say

An energy facility in Ukraine’s capital Kyiv was hit by at least three Russian strikes on Tuesday morning, according to a senior official

“Preliminary three strikes on an energy facility on the Left bank of the city,” Deputy head of the President’s Office of Ukraine Kyrylo Tymoshenko said in a post on Telegram.

Kyiv Mayor Vitali Klitchko said: “Explosions again in Kyiv this morning. It’s Desnyanskyi district. Critical infrastructure facility. All services are headed to the scene.”

The strikes come a day after at least four people were killed when Russia attacked Kyiv with Iranian-made “kamikaze” drones.

Energy targeted: A power facility in the central city of Dnipro was severely damaged by two strikes on Tuesday, according to Ukrainian officials.

Last week, Ukraine’s energy minister told CNN that recent Russian strikes had hit about 30% of the country’s energy infrastructure. Energy Minister Herman Halushchenko said Moscow’s new tactic was targeting Ukrainian electricity exports to Europe, which “helps European countries to save on Russian gas and coal.”
