Today, on September 12, the Russian invaders once again struck the critical infrastructure in Kharkiv. Like yesterday, the city’s residents were cut off from power and water.

Quote"The situation of yesterday evening is repeated. Due to the shelling, facilities of critical infrastructure have been damaged, resulting in power and water supply being cut off in Kharkiv," Ihor Terekhov, the city mayor, reported.

He said that the specialists were working to mitigate the consequences of the shelling.

Because of the power outage, the Kharkiv subway stopped, and people were forced to walk along the tunnels.

The strikes targeted the Kyivskyi and Osnovianskyi districts of Kharkiv. The Kharkiv Regional Military Administration reported one killed and four injured.

Context. Last night, the Russians launched missile attacks on critical infrastructure facilities in the Poltava, Dnipropetrovsk, Zaporizhzhia, Donetsk, and Kharkiv regions. Among other facilities, the Kharkiv combined heat and power plant CHP-5 was damaged, which is one of the largest Ukrainian critical infrastructure facilities. The Sumy Regional Military Administration also reported significant voltage dips yesterday.

In most regions, power supply was quickly restored. By 8:30 AM, 80% of the power and water supply in Kharkiv and the Kharkiv region were restored.

Volodymyr Zelenskyy called the "deliberate and cynical missile strikes" conducted by the Russians on September 11 an act of terrorism. Mykhailo Podoliak, an adviser to the President’s chief of staff, stated that by doing that, the Russian invaders "cowardly" revenged the retreat of their army from the battlefield.
