About a third of Ukraine’s energy infrastructure hit by Russian missiles since Oct. 10, Energy Minister says

Approximately 30% of the country’s energy infrastructure has been hit by Russian missiles since Monday, Ukraine’s Energy Minister Herman Halushchenko told CNN yesterday.

According to the minister, one of the reasons behind the attack was Ukrainian electricity exports to Europe that “help European countries to save on Russian gas and coal.”

Although Halushchenko said the Ukrainian energy system “is still stable,” he called on partners to provide “air protection systems which really could help us to protect our infrastructure.”

Yesterday, the Russians attacked Ladyzhyn Thermal Power Plant, Vinnytsya Oblast, with two Shahed 136 kamikaze drones, the oblast military administration head, Serhiy Borzov, reported on his Telegram channel. Some of its equipment was damaged but there were no casualties, according to media reports.
