Striking satellite image reveals extent of Ukraine’s power shortage

Satellite images of Europe show how severe Ukraine’s energy shortages are compared to other countries following the Russian missile strike.

The image shows the night radiance from Europe. It clearly shows Moscow, the capital of Russia.

Contrary to the image of Ukraine, the satellite image shows Ukraine mostly in darkness. This is a direct result of recent Russian missile strikes that left many millions without power or water.

On Wednesday, strikes targeted critical infrastructure and killed 10 people. They also caused widespread power outages in the country as well as over half of neighboring Moldova.

Herman Halushchenko (Ukraine’s energy minister) stated that the “vast majority” of electricity customers were disconnected.

The shutdown of nuclear power plants in Ukraine, including the reactors at the Pivdennoukrainsk facility in Yuzhnoukrainsk south of Kyiv caused emergency blackouts to other areas to conserve energy and make repairs.

Volodymyr Kudrytskyi, chief executive of Ukrenergo, stated that nuclear power plants will reach normal capacity in one to two days. He also said that it would be possible to switch consumers to a planned shutdown (regime), rather than emergency (blackouts) on Ukrainian TV.

Vitali Klitschko, the Kyiv mayor, stated that a third have heating now, while half of residents still lack electricity.

The authorities have been trying to get water supplies back to the capital with a population of 3 million people, but residents are now forced to queue up or collect it from their drainpipes.

Andriy Sadoviy, mayor of Lviv, tweeted Wednesday that the city was “without light” and that there may be disruptions in the water supply.

On Friday morning, Kharkiv’s regional governor stated that all residents had received their electricity supply restored. However, more than 100,000 people in the region were still experiencing interruptions. In the south, however, Mykolayiv authorities stated that water will be restored to normal after the Russian strikes cut off supplies on Thursday.
