The UN said that all major Ukrainian power plants and transmission systems have been hit by Russian missile attacks.
UN Secretary-General António Guterres said that 10 million consumers in Ukraine, including families, businesses, hospitals and schools, were left without access to electricity. Severely damaged homes, livelihoods and vital infrastructure will take years to rebuild. Guterres' words are quoted by the UN website.
The United Nations Secretary General spoke at the international conference on Ukraine, which is taking place in Paris.
“The war in Ukraine is an ongoing humanitarian nightmare. It's getting worse every day, the temperature is dropping,” Guterres said.
According to him, all major power plants and power transmission systems in Ukraine have been hit by Russian missile attacks. The scale of devastation across the country requires strong support from the international community, going far beyond humanitarian aid.
“We must invest in the sustainable recovery and reconstruction of Ukraine to prevent the current crisis from escalating into poverty, hunger and need for millions of Ukrainians,” Guterres said.
