This was reported by the Ministry of Energy.

As a result of the explosion, windows in the administrative and household and laboratory and household buildings were damaged, and power grids were also damaged — 1 860 consumers in the cities of Slavuta and Netishyn of Khmelnytskyi region were cut off.
