Yurii Pohuliako, Head of the Volyn Oblast Military Administration, has reported explosions in the Kovel district.

"An energy infrastructure facility in the Kovel district has been hit. Information about casualties is being ascertained. All relevant services have been dispatched to the site. Volyn Oblast might be left without power as a result [of the attacks]. Make sure you have all essentials with you: water, torches, power banks, and so on," Pohuliako added.

Serhii Hamalii, Head of the Khmelnytskyi Oblast Military Administration, reported that "Two missiles have hit the Khmelnytskyi hromada. There is no power in part of the city of Khmelnytskyi."

Serhii Borzov, Head of the Vinnytsia Oblast Military Administration, reported that a critical infrastructure facility in the oblast has been hit.

Meanwhile, Serhii Sukhomlyn, Mayor of Zhytomyr, said that Russia has carried out two strikes on an energy infrastructure facility, leaving the city without power. The Zhytomyr Oblast Military Administration added that an emergency blackout might be introduced in the oblast as a result of Russian missile strikes on Zhytomyr Oblast and the rest of Ukraine.

Dmytro Lunin, Head of the Poltava Oblast Military Administration, reported that a missile has struck the Kremenchuk district.

Andrii Raikovych, Head of the Kirovohrad Oblast Military Administration, said that "Enemy missiles have not spared us. Two strikes. Energy infrastructure facilities in the Kropyvnytskyi district have been affected. There are no casualties."

Oleksandr Vilkul, Mayor of Kryvyi Rih (Dnipropetrovsk Oblast), said that the city of Kryvyi Rih was also hit by several Russian missiles, despite the fact that air defence had been activated.

Explosions also rang out in the cities of Lviv and Kharkiv.

Several residential buildings in Kyiv have been damaged as a result of the Russian missile strikes, and at least half of the capital’s residents have been left without power.

Ukraine’s anti-aircraft defence systems are operating in the city of Kyiv and in Chernihiv, Poltava, Vinnytsia, Sumy and Zhytomyr oblasts.

Maksym Marchenko, Head of the Odesa Oblast Military Administration, reported that emergency blackouts will be rolled out in the city of Odesa and several other districts in Odesa Oblast as a result of the large-scale Russian attack on Ukraine’s energy infrastructure.

Ukraine’s Air Force said that Russian forces launched around 100 missiles on Ukraine on 15 November, thus exceeding the number of missiles launched in the largest missile strike to date on 10 October, when 84 Russian missiles targeted Ukrainian cities and critical infrastructure facilities.
