As a result of enemy shelling, one of DTEK's (the largest private vertically-integrated energy company in Ukraine) thermal power plants has halted electricity production, according to DTEK's Telegram channel.

"The enemy continues to carry out systematic terrorist attacks on civilian and energy facilities in Ukraine. During the night of February 12 to 13, one of DTEK's thermal power plants was affected as a result of shelling," the company's statement reads.

It is also reported that according to preliminary information, there were no casualties. However, the attack caused serious damage to the equipment of the enterprise. Following the cessation of shelling, power engineers have begun to eliminate the consequences and restore the equipment's operation.

Russian strikes on energy facilities

In recent weeks, Russians have resumed attacks on energy facilities in several regions of Ukraine. On February 3, the enemy struck in the Dnipropetrovsk region, leaving nearly 15,000 people without electricity and disabling two boiler houses. Emergency power outages were implemented in Kryvyi Rih after the shelling.

Later, Ukrenergo reported that this attack on the energy infrastructure of Kryvyi Rih was one of the most massive in a year.

Additionally, yesterday, on February 12, occupiers attacked Pavlohrad in the Dnipropetrovsk region. As a result of the enemy's strike, a substation of Ukrenergo was disabled. A fire broke out, and energy equipment was damaged.
