On October 23, DTEK, Ukraine's largest private energy company, reported significant damage to a thermal power plant following a nighttime attack by Russian forces on October 22.
According to Kyiv Independent, the company stated that there were no injuries and that repair work began immediately after the attack, as reported by The Kyiv Independent.
For security reasons, DTEK did not disclose the exact location or the extent of the damage to the affected power plant.
It's worth noting that Russia had previously attacked DTEK warehouses in the Dnipropetrovsk region on October 2, causing damage to cables, transformers, and other electrical equipment.
Since the beginning of October 2022, Russia has repeatedly attacked critical infrastructure in Ukraine, tragically resulting in several deaths and nationwide power outages.
Moscow has officially admitted that Ukraine's energy system is one of its main targets. According to the Geneva Convention, attacking vital public infrastructure is considered a war crime.
