Russia has attacked electrical power facilities in much of Ukraine, including the country’s largest hydroelectric plant, causing widespread outages and killing at least three people. Ukraine's energy minister says the nighttime drone and rocket attacks were the largest on the country's energy sector in recent times.

Over 60 drones and almost 90 missiles of various types were fired that night, Ukrainian officials said.

The attacks caused a fire at the Dnipro Hydroelectric Station, which supplies electricity to the Zaporizhzhia Nuclear Power Plant, Europe’s largest nuclear power installation. The plant is occupied by Russian troops, and fighting around the plant has been a constant concern because of the potential for a nuclear accident.

“The world sees the targets of Russian terrorists as clearly as possible: power plants and energy supply lines, a hydroelectric dam, ordinary residential buildings, even a trolleybus. Russia is fighting against the ordinary life of people,” President Volodymyr Zelenskyy said Friday on the Telegram messaging app.
