In Kupyansk, Kharkiv region, a power company team came under Russian missile fire. Work is also underway to restore power grids in Toretsk, Donetsk region
Ukraine’s Ministry of Energy reported the information.
"During repair work in Kupyansk, Kharkiv region, power engineers came under missile attack. Fortunately, there were no casualties," the statement said.
The agency noted that almost 1,000 consumers were supplied with power in the region over the day, 50 of whom received power for the first time since the beginning of the full-scale war.
"In the Donetsk region, 2 110 kV overhead power lines and 1 110 kV substation were disconnected due to shelling. As a result, 31,000 consumers in 11 settlements lost power. Most consumers were reconnected on the same day, and repair works are ongoing," the Ministry of Energy said.
"Work is also underway to restore the networks that were damaged in Toretsk during the shelling on September 27. Part of the city already has power," they added.
Some consumers in Dnipropetrovsk, Zaporizhzhia, Sumy, Kherson and Chernihiv regions remain without power.
In the Dnipropetrovsk region, about 5,000 consumers were cut off for technological reasons, but all of them were reconnected within an hour.
In Kherson, about 2,000 consumers remain without power due to flooding caused by the destruction of the Kakhovka hydroelectric power plant.
On the morning of September 29, Russian troops launched a missile attack on an infrastructure facility in Mykolaiv. Besides, Russia shelled the Kutsurub community with artillery.
