NEC "Ukrenergo" stated that in the evening in Kyiv, they may still turn off the power supply.

They say that power supply has been restored to almost the entire territory of Ukraine after yesterdayʼs missile attack by the Russians, but restoration work in the Kyiv region and central regions is still ongoing.

"This evening in Kyiv and the central regions, consumer restrictions are applied again, but in the afternoon, it was possible to do without them [...]. The introduction of such measures is connected with the need to unload the energy infrastructure for quick restoration work. Schedules of emergency shutdowns can last more than 2 hours and are published on the websites of regional companies," the company reported.

For now, Ukrainians are asked not to turn on powerful electrical appliances at the same time from 5:00 p.m. to 11:00 p.m.

  • Mayor of Kyiv Vitaliy Klitschko said that there would be no blackouts in the capital on October 11.
  • Earlier, the Prime Minister of Ukraine said that the consequences of massive missile attacks on energy facilities would be eliminated within two days — by October 12.
