Electrical substation feeding Kherson Region’s power grid damaged by Ukrainian fire

This led to power outages, the local electric company said

GENICHESK, November 28. /TASS/. The Kakhovka electrical substation, which plays a key role in the Kherson Region’s power grid, was damaged by deliberate Ukrainian shelling on Tuesday, causing disruptions in electricity supplies, the local electrical company said.

"The Kiev troops shelled the 330kV substation, which is key to the region's power supply. It was shelled yesterday, too, but today they managed to knock it out of operation," the Khersonoblenergo power supply company said.

Damage assessment is impossible at this point, because Ukraine continues to shell the facility.

According to Khersonoblenergo, the power supply issues will be fixed within 24 hours.

Earlier, a group of workers engaged in post-cyclone repairs came under Ukrainian fire in the Kherson Region.
