Russia Launches Fresh Missile Strikes, Widening Attacks on Ukrainian Power Plants

Russian missiles hit homes and power plants in several cities in Ukraine on Tuesday, including Kyiv where three strikes left part of the city without power, as Moscow seeks to crush Ukraine’s energy supply ahead of winter.

Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky said Russia has destroyed about 30% of Ukraine’s power stations, causing massive blackouts across the country, since Oct. 10, when Russia first responded to Ukraine’s battlefield victories with an uptick of strikes on critical infrastructure.
