Residents of some districts of Kherson, including Korabelnyi, have been without electricity for several days due to significant damage to energy facilities as a result of Russian shelling, according to Roman Mrochko, head of the Kherson City Military Administration.

Emergency repair work has been going on all this time. Power engineers have engaged colleagues from other regions to quickly repair damaged facilities and networks and restore service to people.

"We will inform about the full restoration of power supply in the houses that were cut off due to enemy shelling last week," he adds.

Russian shelling of Kherson

Kherson was liberated from Russian occupation forces in November 2022. Since then, it has been under constant Russian shelling.

On June 20, the head of the Kherson Regional Military Administration, Oleksandr Prokudin, reported that Kherson was left without electricity as a result of Russian shelling.

On the same day, Ukrainian Deputy Energy Minister Svitlana Hrynchuk said that the power could be restored to Kherson in some days.
