21 rockets hit the Kharkiv region in a massive attack on Ukraine overnight, according to the head of the Kharkiv Regional Military Administration, Oleh Syniehubov.

According to Syniehubov, emergency service phone numbers have been restored, and critical infrastructure in the city and region has been maintained, allowing consumers to be connected soon.

Nevertheless, the situation in the city and region is still complex. Energy workers, the State Emergency Service, and all services will be working around the clock to solve the problems.

"I don't want to give specific dates or times to avoid informing the enemy. But consumers will soon see the results of our work," he added.

Massive attack

Overnight on March 22, aggressors launched a massive attack on Ukraine, releasing over 150 drones and missiles. Air defense forces shot down 55 Shahed drones and 37 missiles.

The energy sector was among the targets. Specifically, the Russians targeted the DniproHES. Kharkiv is in dire condition, with power outages, internet problems, water shortages, and non-functioning public transport.

Power outages also occurred in the Dnipropetrovsk, Poltava, Sumy, Odesa, and Khmelnytskyi regions. Critical infrastructure objects in the Ivano-Frankivsk, Vinnytsia, and Mykolaiv regions were also targeted.

State energy company Ukrenergo has already called today's attack on the energy sector the largest since the war began.
