Quote from Kozytskyi: "Residents of the Lviv region: unfortunately we have had two missile strikes on an electricity substation in Lviv Oblast. No information about casualties has been received at this time.


Currently (15:56), 1.5 million people in the Yavoriv, ​​Lviv and Chervonohrad districts are without electricity.

Due to a missile attack on an energy facility in the region, there are emergency power outages. The planned outage schedules do not apply."

Details: Power engineers have arrived at the site of the strike and are working to reroute the supply to the oblast, bypassing the substation.

Kozytskyi noted that if it is not possible to quickly restore power, ''invincibility centres'' will be set up in the affected settlements, where it will be possible to get warm, drink hot tea, eat some hot food and call relatives.

The local authorities will let people know the addresses of these centres.
