Russia continues to strike at night in the more than two-year-old war of aggression in Ukraine. In recent weeks, Moscow has stepped up airstrikes targeting key infrastructure such as power plants in response to Ukrainian bombing of Russian border areas.

It is intended to further psychologically exhaust the people of the country. According to the electricity network operator Ukrainerho, the currently planned blackout in the Kharkiv region is necessary. Power is also at risk in Odessa and Khmelnytskyi regions.
