Largest power plant in Ukraine’s Kyiv region destroyed in Russian attack


The largest power-generating plant in Ukraine’s Kyiv region was reportedly destroyed in a Russian missile attack on Thursday as Moscow steps up its attacks on infrastructure, Paralel.Az reports citing CNN.

Russian shelling caused a large-scale fire at the Trypilska Thermal Power Plant (TPP), with the company still working to localize the fire in the plant’s turbine workshop, energy company Centrenergo said in a statement.

There were no casualties, and the attack has not resulted in power cuts in Ukraine’s capital region Kyiv or other regions supplied by Trypilska TPP.

The plant was the largest supplier of electricity to the regions of Kyiv, Cherkasy and Zhytomyr, the Centrenergo statement said.

The energy company has lost 100% of its power generation across its three plants, which have all been destroyed or occupied by Russia, marking “a black day in the history of Centrenergo,” the statement added.
