Due to anticipated power outages brought on by Russian missile strikes, Ukraine’s national energy provider has asked residents to “charge everything” before 7:00 (04:00 GMT) Today.

The attack on Wednesday is the second attack since October 10 aimed at vital infrastructure in Ukraine. Today it is expected that the entire nation will experience outages lasting up to four hours at a time, according to the grid operator Ukrenergo.

President Volodymyr Zelensky claimed on Thursday that Russian airstrikes had destroyed 30% of Ukrainian power plants. According to Ukrenergo, since Russia’s invasion on February 24th, there have been more attacks on electricity infrastructure in the last 10 days than there have been since the beginning of the conflict.
