Water supplies in the Ukrainian capital were cut off on Friday after a wave of Russian strikes and subway services were suspended so that stations could be used as shelters, the mayor of Kyiv said.
“Water supply is interrupted in all parts of the capital due to damage to energy infrastructure,” Kyiv Mayor Vitali Klitschko said on social media after telling residents that “metro traffic on all lines is temporarily suspended.”
A new wave of Russian airstrikes hit several cities in Ukraine early Friday, with the mayor of the capital Kyiv reporting an explosion in the city’s central area, officials said.
Vitali Klitschko said explosions were heard in the Desnyan district and residents were warned to take shelter, while the governor of the eastern Kharkov region said major cities there were without power after the Russian attack.
