MOSCOW, October 31. /TASS/. Dozens of public facilities used by Ukrainian troops and foreign mercenaries in the city of Zaporozhye have been left without power after a strike on a substation near the Dnieper Hydroelectric Station, Chairman of the We Stand With Russia public movement Vladimir Rogov said on Monday.
"Targeted strikes on a substation complex near the Dnieper Hydroelectric Station were carried out at 9:00 am," he told the Zvezda TV channel. "Downtown was left without electricity, as well as several dozen public facilities where Zelensky’s militants are staying and where they store ammunition and equipment, including some locations where Foreign Legion militants are stationed," Rogov added.
"Power supply is crucial in terms of convenience and living conditions for militants deployed to the city. The level of their combat readiness is sharply declining because the level of comfort and other things are changing dramatically," the activist noted.
He emphasized that there was no threat to the Dnieper Hydroelectric Station because the strikes had hit several hundred meters from the facility. "We are well aware that the Dnieper Hydroelectric Station should remain intact, otherwise there will be terrible consequences, given that the plant has been booby-trapped in three places," Rogov said. "Our enemies are going to blow it up if they retreat or we liberate the city of Zaporozhye, we know their plans," the activist noted.
