According to Ivano-Frankivsk Oblast Governor Svitlana Onyshchuk, the strike provoked a fire at the site but it has already been extinguished.
Onyshchuk called on residents of the region to limit electricity consumption from 5 p.m. to 11 p.m., repeating the government's call for Ukrainians across the country, as the voltage has dropped sharply in the power grid. No employees of the plant were injured, she said.
On Oct. 10, Russia launched a mass missile strike on Ukraine. According to the National Police, Russian forces hit about 70 infrastructure sites, including 29 critical infrastructure facilities.
