Serhiy Sukhomlin, the mayor of Zhytomir, the county seat west of Kyiv, said at his press conference that due to the Russian air attack, about half of the residents of the settlement were still without electricity in the afternoon. Russia attacked the city’s energy infrastructure with Iranian-made self-destructing Sahid drones. “The consequences are quite serious in Zhytomyr, there was no water in the apartments in the morning due to the power outage,” he said. “At some of the vital infrastructural buildings, we generate electricity with generators.

Diesel-powered buses are also used in these conditions, but there are not enough of them.
