17 settlements in the Donetsk region and four settlements in the Kherson region were cut off from power supply due to shelling, as well as a number of consumers in the Sumy, Dnipro, Zaporizhzhia, Kharkiv, and Chernihiv regions.
Some households in the Kirovohrad, Dnipro, and Chernihiv regions are still cut off from electricity "due to technological disruptions," the energy ministry explained.
"Repair teams are working where the security situation allows," it added.
Overall, the electricity generated by Ukrainian power plants is fully sufficient to meet the needs of consumers, with the repair campaign at generation facilities underway as well.
According to the Ukrainian Air Force Command, Russia attacked Ukraine with Iskander-M and Kalibr missiles, as well as Iranian Shahed 136 kamikaze drones overnight on Thursday.
No major damage has so far been reported.
