Russian airstrikes have destroyed 30 percent of Ukraine’s power stations since October 10, Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy said on Tuesday.

He wrote on Twitter that the attacks had caused massive blackouts across Ukraine and that there was “no space left for negotiations” with Russian President Vladimir Putin.

Meanwhile, Kyrylo Tymoshenko, the deputy head of the Ukrainian president's office said the situation in Ukraine is “critical” following the waves of Russian strikes targeting the country's energy infrastructure ahead of winter.

“The situation is critical now across the country because our regions are dependent on one another... it’s necessary for the whole country to prepare for electricity, water and heating outages,” Tymoshenko told Ukrainian television.

Separately on Tuesday, officials said that strikes that targeted an energy facility in Kyiv left at least two people dead.

“On October 18, 2022, the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation, using means of warfare prohibited by international law, launched a missile attack on an energy supply facility on the left bank of the capital. Preliminarily, two people were killed and one was injured,” the regional prosecutor’s office said.
