Power grid damaged in Kyiv as Russian missile debris hits substation


A transformer substation was completely destroyed, and power grids were damaged by debris from a downed Russian missile in the Holosiivskyi district of Kyiv early on May 31, Ukraine's largest private energy operator DTEK  reported on Telegram.

Efforts to restore power began as soon as the security situation allowed, with most homes reconnected to the grid via backup sources by 8:10 a.m. EET.

Approximately 10 private homes and one commercial building remain without power but are expected to be restored by the end of the day.

Earlier in the day, city officials reported a fire at a warehouse and damage to non-residential buildings and vehicles following the Iskander-K cruise missile strike, which was launched from Russia's Kursk Oblast. There were no casualties.
