An official in the office of Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky said on Telegram Saturday that repair work was going “around the clock” to restore electricity.
“We understand that this is a difficult situation, especially for those who have been forced to leave their homes because of the shelling. But we are doing everything we can to return life to normal as quickly as possible,” the official said.
The city of Kherson has been without power since May 9, when Ukrainian forces regained control of the city from Russia-backed separatists. Shelling from Russia-controlled territory has forced some residents to flee, and killed at least one person.
Kherson is an important strategic city for Ukraine, located on the Black Sea just north of the Crimea region annexed by Russia in 2014. The city is also a key transit point for goods traveling between Ukraine and Russia.
The Ukrainian government has been struggling to cope with the escalating crisis and has been forced to ration electricity in some areas. This has caused immense hardship for many Ukrainians, who have had to go without power for days at a time.
The Russian military has been targeting Ukraine’s power grid in an attempt to cripple the country’s infrastructure. This is a deliberate act of aggression against the Ukrainian people, and it is having a devastating effect on their lives.
The Ukrainian government has condemned the attacks and has called on the international community to help stop them. The United Nations Security Council has also condemned the attacks and called for an immediate end to the hostilities.
