At least two people are dead and two others injured, including a 1-year-old child, in the Zaporizhzhia region following nationwide Russian missile strikes, APA reports citing CNBC.
Several private homes were destroyed and there are likely more injured.
The head of Kyiv’s regional military administration, Oleksii Kuleba, urged residents to stay in shelters as Ukrainian air defense began operating in the region.
“There is an increased danger of rockets moving toward the region,” Kuleba posted on Telegram.
The northeastern Sumy region is also without power due to an emergency shutdown of the energy system following the attacks left, according to the region’s local energy company, NE Ukraine. The Odesa region was cut off from its water supply due to the strikes, the local water supply company said.
The wave of widespread missile strikes form part of Russia’s efforts to cut off Ukraine from vital energy resources by targeting vital infrastructure across Ukraine, leaving many Ukrainians in harsh and uncertain conditions for the winter.
