All of Odessa lost power around 14:30. Electric transport does not work in the city, there are problems with mobile communications, and in some areas there is no water.
This was reported to correspondents of “Dumskaya” by residents of different districts of the city.
Probably, the problem is more global – now the entire Odessa region can be without electricity. This information was confirmed by the regional military administration.
DTEK has not yet commented on the incident.
Most likely, the reason for the shutdown was another rocket attack on the energy infrastructure. There is information that could stop the work of the South Ukrainian nuclear power plant.
