Millions of Ukrainians were left without power on Friday after Russia bombarded the country’s electricity grid a day earlier. The damage comes as Kyiv and other cities recorded their first snowfall of the winter. It follows a similar barrage on Tuesday. “Currently, more than 10 million Ukrainians are without electricity,” Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy said Thursday. That constitutes almost a quarter of the pre-war population of Ukraine. Zelenskyy said the regions of Odessa, Vinnytsia, Sumy and Kyiv were the hardest hit. Many towns reported injuries and deaths.
