According to them, Russian missiles hit the energy infrastructure in the Pavlograd and Kamensky districts. There is serious damage at one of the high-voltage substations, in connection with which many settlements were left without electricity. In the Dnipropetrovsk region, a regime of total energy saving has been introduced. How long it will take to repair is unknown.

In addition, Ukraine has many diesel locomotives (obsolete rolling stock) that do not need electricity.
