"As a result of the terrorist shelling, the equipment was seriously damaged, which left residents of one of the settlements near the plant without electricity and water," DTEK said.

It added that there were no casualties.

"Immediately after the shelling stopped, DTEK’s power engineers began active work to eliminate the consequences. Now they are making every effort to restore power supply to Ukrainians' homes as soon as possible," the company added.

Overall, DTEK completed scheduled repairs at 20 power units of its thermal power plants by Monday.

The company’s power engineers also added another thermal power plant unit to help the Ukrainian power grid after the repairs.
