3 dead after Russian strikes, parts of Ukraine without power


Kiev’s mayor said Russian strikes have left Lviv in western Ukraine without power.


Russian attacks in Kiev left at least three dead and six injured, city officials said, while power and water cuts were reported citywide.

“As a result of the attack, a two-storey residential building was damaged. Three people died and six were injured,” the city’s military administration told Telegram.

The city of Lviv in western Ukraine was completely without power, the mayor said on Wednesday, after massive Russian attacks targeted cities across Ukraine, including the capital Kyiv.

“The whole city is without power. We are waiting for additional information from energy experts,” Mayor Andriy Sadovyi said on social media, warning that there could also be interruptions to the city’s water supply.

Russian strikes also hit the Ukrainian capital Kyiv on Wednesday, officials said, damaging energy infrastructure, the latest in a series of systematic attacks that have caused nationwide blackouts with plummeting temperatures.

“The enemy is launching missile strikes on critical infrastructure in the city of Kiev. Stay in shelters until the air raid ends,” the Kiev city government said on social media, with Mayor Vitali Klitschko saying infrastructure had been hit.

AFP journalists, meanwhile, reported power cuts in northern and central Kiev.
