New phase of war threatens Ukraine’s public services
Moscow has openly declared its intention to more frequently attack power stations, water facilities and other vital infrastructure.
kyiv — When a missile hit a power station about a kilometer (less than a mile) from his apartment on the outskirts of kyiv, Oleksander Maystrenko did not panic, run to a bomb shelter, or consider evacuating, despite who lives near what has abruptly become the Russian military’s main target in the war: anything related to Ukraine’s vital infrastructure.
This is what the latest phase in the Ukraine war looks like. Moscow has openly declared its intention to attack power stations, water facilities and other vital infrastructure more frequently. A Ukrainian energy official said Wednesday that 40% of the country’s power system has been severely damaged, and President Volodimir Zelensky said Russian forces have destroyed 30% of Ukraine’s power stations since Oct. 10.
But Maystrenko and his neighbors say they are prepared.
If the Russians cut them off, they have flashlights and candles, he said. If there is no gas for the stoves, he plans to build a rudimentary stove in front of the building’s entrance and use the firewood he has been collecting. In addition, he has been bottling water and stocking up on pickles and canned goods.
