Bulgaria: Russia Strikes Energy Sites in Southern Ukraine

In a continuation of its military offensive against Ukraine, Russia conducted airstrikes on two energy sites in southern Ukraine, causing temporary power outages in the region. Ukrainian officials reported that the strikes targeted a substation in Mykolaiv and production facilities in the Odesa region. The Ministry of Energy confirmed the attacks, stating that consumers in Mykolaiv and Kherson regions experienced disruptions in power supply as a result.

According to the Ukrainian Air Force, the assault involved 17 drones and three missiles, marking another escalation in the conflict between the two nations. Over the past month, Russia has intensified its targeting of Ukrainian energy infrastructure, launching some of its most potent airstrikes since the onset of the war. Moscow has justified these attacks as a response to alleged Ukrainian drone strikes on Russian oil refineries.

The recent airstrikes highlight the ongoing volatility and danger faced by civilians in Ukraine as the conflict enters its third year. Despite international condemnation and calls for de-escalation, tensions between Russia and Ukraine continue to mount, with no immediate resolution in sight.

While Ukrainian forces remain vigilant in defending against Russian aggression, the attacks on critical energy sites underscore the broader impact of the conflict on civilian infrastructure and daily life in affected regions.
