Russian shelling kills 15 in Kherson as Ukraine scrambles to restore power

Russian shelling of the southern Ukrainian city of Kherson killed 15 civilians on Friday, officials said, as engineers across the country tried to bring heat, water and electricity to major cities.

Across the country, Russian airstrikes in recent weeks have brought Ukraine’s energy infrastructure to its knees as winter approaches and temperatures hover near freezing, raising fears of a health crisis and another exodus.

Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy said more than six million households in the country were still affected by power outages two days after targeted Russian attacks on Ukraine’s energy infrastructure.

The country’s national energy company, Ukrenergo, said late Friday that the grid was still facing a 30 percent deficit and its technicians were working “around the clock” to restore power. But it said it expects to increase coverage over the weekend, boosted by additional nuclear power.

The attack on Kherson, a key city in the southeast recently recaptured by Ukrainian forces, was the deadliest Russian bombardment in recent days.

A total of “15 residents were killed and 35 injured, including a child, as a result of enemy shelling,” said city official Galyna Lugova. Several “private houses and skyscrapers” were damaged, she added.
