The morning missile attack by the terrorist country of Russia on March 24 did not significantly affect the operation of the power system. At the same time, UAVs attacked power facilities in Dnipropetrovs'k region.

In turn, Kharkiv is experiencing grid restrictions, Ukrenergo's press service reports. In Odesa and Khmelnytsky regions, blackouts are possible as consumption increases.

Debris damaged some equipment at one of the substations and a high-voltage power line. At the same time, Kryvyi Rih experienced interruptions in heat supply and disruptions in production processes at some industrial enterprises.

Also, during the airborne alarm, the overhead line that ensures the operation of the backup power supply circuit of Zaporizhzhia NPP was shut down.

In Dnipropetrovska oblast, Ukrenergo and regional power distribution companies restored power supply to industry and heat supply to household consumers. The power supply to Zaporizhzhya NPP has also been restored - the line that was out of service has been brought back online. Emergency repair works are ongoing 24/7 in all affected regions.
