Deputy Head of President's Office Kyrylo Tymoshenko asked Ukrainians to limit electricity consumption on the evening of Oct. 10 (from 5 p.m. to 10 p.m.), following Russia's mass attack on Ukrainian cities.

In Kyiv and Kyiv Oblast, electricity supply has been partially limited for industrial and household customers; officials have already scheduled emergency cutoffs, said Kyiv Mayor Vitali Klitschko.

Prime Minister Denys Shmyhal said Russia's attacks on Monday damaged 11 infrastructure facilities in eight Ukrainian regions.
