Electricity supply has been restored in 90 percent of residential buildings, while one-quarter of consumers are still without power in the Ukrainian capital, Kyiv Mayor Vitali Klitschko was reported saying, while heavy snowfall is being expected, reports Aljazeera
The head of Ukraine’s police says at least 32 people in the southern Ukrainian region of Kherson have been killed by Russian shelling since Moscow’s forces pulled out two weeks ago.
Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy hosted a summit in Kyiv to promote his country’s “Grain From Ukraine” initiative to export grain to countries most vulnerable to famine and drought.
Several houses and other buildings have been destroyed in the Dnipropetrovsk region because of Russian shelling, says Governor Valentyn Reznichenko, with casualties reported.
In another development the mayor of Kyiv, Vitali Klitschko, has hit back against criticism by Ukraine’s president over measures to help residents withstand power cuts, describing disputes as “senseless” during Russia’s military campaign
Klitschko said 430 “warming centres” were helping residents cope with the effects of Russian attacks on power stations and more than 100 more were planned in case of extreme weather. President Volodymyr Zelenskyy noted last week that there were a lot of complaints about measures adopted in the capital.
“I do not want to become involved in political battles, particularly in the current situation,” Klitschko said in a video posted on Telegram. “That is senseless. I have things to do in the city.”
