As a result of another massive missile attack by the Russian Federation on December 5, many regions of Ukraine had to switch to emergency power cuts to stabilize the energy system.

President Volodymyr Zelenskyi said this in his traditional evening video address.

According to him, immediately after the shelling, the power plant started restoration work. 

The most difficult situation is in the central regions of Ukraine, in Odesa, Zaporizhia, and Kharkiv regions.

In many regions, it was necessary to switch to emergency power outages to stabilize the power system. 

"From Transcarpathia to Kyiv Oblast, from Kirovohrad Oblast to Sumy and Kharkiv Oblasts. As of this evening, Vinnytsia Oblast, Kyiv Oblast, Zhytomyr Oblast, Dnipropetrovsk Oblast, Odesa, Khmelnytsky Oblast and Cherkasy Oblast have the most outages. But we will do everything to restore stability," the head of state said.

Zelensky noted that Russian missile terror is once again affecting not only Ukraine, but also neighboring states.

In particular, there were power outages in Moldova. 

"This once again proves that Russia's ability to carry out such massive terrorist attacks is a threat not only to Ukraine, but to our entire region. At the very least," he concluded.

We will remind you that Ukrainian air defense shot down enemy missiles in Poltava region, Kharkiv region, Cherkasy region, Vinnytsia region, Dnipropetrovsk region, Kyiv region.

The Russians launched 10 missiles at Kyiv, of which 9 were shot down.

DTEK has already been notified of the possible consequences of a missile attack. 

After the shelling, Ukrenergo introduced schedules of emergency power outages throughout Ukraine.
