The city of Kherson is still without electricity, an official in the office of President Volodymyr Zelensky said on Ukrainian television on Monday.
“There is no electricity in Kherson city. We are working on it,” Kyrylo Tymoshenko, deputy head of the Office of the President of Ukraine, said. “This is the number one task for sure.”
Ukrainian forces swept into the city and Russian troops retreated to the east on November 11 following a months-long Russian occupation.
Tymoshenko said the government had established a network of tents and buildings that had generators — so-called “invincibility points” — where people could access hot water and heat up food. Some 1,600 people accessed these facilities on Sunday, the State Emergency Service said on Telegram.
On Sunday, the Kherson city council also published a list of four water distribution points where residents could get water this week.
