The authorities of the Kyiv region appealed to residents with a request not to use energy-intensive appliances and introduced a schedule for power outages. In the Zhytomyr region, emergency shutdowns were recorded and part of the regional center remains without electricity. In the Dnepropetrovsk region, street lighting was cut down and "stabilization blackouts" began. In the Cherkasy region, emergency shutdowns were recorded, after which street lighting was switched to economy mode. In the Odessa region, a schedule of power outages has been published, which can be used if necessary to balance the power system. In the Rivne region, power supply limitation schedules have been introduced. In the Volyn region, some areas and communities are still without electricity.
