Heating was fully restored to Kyiv on Sunday, two days after a barrage of Russian missiles targeted the city.
“All heat supply sources are operating normally,” Mayor Vitali Klitschko said in a message on Telegram, adding that utilities will operate throughout Sunday on “individual buildings, where there may be heat issues. minor heating”.
The wider Kyiv region, however, continues to struggle with electricity supply issues. More than 600,000 people, or 50% of the region’s inhabitants, are currently without electricity, the head of the Kyiv regional military administration told Ukrainian television.
Crews have restored power to areas worst hit by shelling over the past two days, the official, Oleksiy Kuleba, said.
But “there are still several difficult areas where there is no electricity,” Kuleba continued, adding that Bucha district in particular is facing supply problems.
Across the region, 410 service centers, known as “invincibility points”, are now operating, where locals can charge their phones and receive hot drinks, Kuleba said.
