KIEV, February 01, 10:47 /ITAR-TASS/. Ukraine’s 412 settlements in nine regions remain without electricity, the country’s emergency service reported on Saturday.
“As of 07:00 /09:00 Moscow time/ on February 1, in Crimea 99 settlements are without electricity, in the Odessa region - 97, in the Kherson region - 47, in the Nikolayev region - 73, in the Donetsk region - 34, in the Ternopol region - 38, in the Lvov region - 11, in the Ivano-Frankovsk - eight, in the Chernovtsy region - five,” the service reports.
The anomalously heavy snowfall cuts energy wires. The situation becomes even worse in the freezing temperatures across almost the entire country. Under the complicated weather conditions, the government had to announce an emergency regime in Crimea and the Donetsk region.
