According to this source, after the attack on the 29th last week, it was the second major explosion at the company's facilities.

A total of 5 of the six thermal power plants were severely damaged and some units were completely destroyed, Sajaruk told national television.

In total, in March, Russia carried out more than ten attacks against DTEK facilities.

In turn, Centernergo head Andriy Jota told Interfax-Ukraine that its thermal power plant in the eastern part of Kharkiv was completely destroyed by Russian strikes.

Ukrainergo said today that consumption restrictions will continue in Kharkiv Oblast and Krivoy Ryk.

This evening, overnight shelling south of Odesa damaged a power plant at Ukrenergo and left 170,000 homes without power.

After overnight restoration work, power was restored to customers this Sunday, DTEK said on its Telegram channel. EFE
