Russian forces strike Ukrainian cities with missiles to destroy power stations

According to information released by the Ukrainian Army Press Services on November 25, 2022, Russia launched a deadly wave of missile strikes on energy infrastructure on Nov 23rd, 2022, causing power outages not only across Ukraine but also in Moldova. The attack came shortly after the European Parliament recognized Russia as a state sponsor of terrorism. Following the strike, Foreign Minister of Ukraine Kuleba called on the rest of the world to follow the EU's example and label Russia as a terrorist state.

According to Ukraine's Air Force, the Russian attack killed at least three people. It also caused emergency power outages and halted water supply in multiple cities. 70% of Kyiv remains without a power supply. Kyiv Mayor Vitali Klitschko said utility service employees "worked all night to restore the life support of the capital." According to the mayor, the water supply has already been restored on the left bank of the city following Russia's deadly missile strike.

General Staff of the Armed Forces of Ukraine: "Yesterday, the Russians hit residential buildings and energy infrastructure in Kyiv, Vinnytsia, Lviv, Kirovohrad, Zaporizhzhia, Kharkiv, and Donetsk regions. The occupying forces fired 67 cruise missiles and up to 10 Lancet attack UAVs. 51 missiles and 5 specified drones were shot down by the Defense Forces of Ukraine".

In Moldova, there was a power outage due to a frequency jump in the network shared with Ukraine — because of it, Moldova lost the opportunity to receive energy from the European power grid, Ukrenergo explained and reminded that Ukraine had not exported energy since October 11. The incident made the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Moldova summon the Russian ambassador, and President Sandu once again expressed support for Ukraine.

All three of Ukraine's nuclear power plants were cut off from power and disconnected from country's power grid for the first time due to a massive shelling on Nov 23rd in Ukraine; ZNPP was in a blackout. 'The news from our team yesterday and this morning are extremely disturbing. Explosions occurred at the site of this major nuclear power plant, which is completely unacceptable", Director General of the IAEA Rafael Mariano Grossi said in a statement. "Another massive wave of Russian missiles against Ukraine today... It's terror bombing - nothing less," comments Carl Bildt, Co-Chair European Council on Foreign Relations.

Over the past 30 days, the Russian army has launched more than 236 Kh-101, Kh-555, and Caliber missiles in Ukraine. And according to yesterday's data from the Ministry of Defense, over the past 9 months, the Russian Federation has been able to produce 120 Calibers and 120 X-101s (240 in total). That is, in a month Russia used as many missiles as it could produce in 9 months.

The President of the European Parliament announced the massive supply of power generators to Ukraine: "It's time to step up our support to Ukraine. This is what the #GeneratorsofHope campaign is all about. Ukraine needs energy for hospitals, schools & homes. With the help of European cities, we will provide a massive supply of power generators."
