The liberation of Kherson has come with a price: Russia destroyed critical infrastructure.
Before retreating from the right-bank of the Dnipro River in the Kherson region, the Russian occupiers destroyed all critical infrastructure and mined all essential objects, President Volodymyr Zelenskyy said. According to the president, there is no electricity, no communication, no internet, and no television in Kherson and the de-occupied settlements in the region. Ukrenergo General Director Volodymyr Kudrytskyi said that the Russians have destroyed an energy facility that provided electricity for the entire right bank of the Kherson region and a large part of the Mykolaiv region. Power engineers are looking for possibilities to supply electricity to the region using emergency contingencies.
