Dangerous fire in an electrical substation in Ukraine: 5 lakh people forced to live without electricity, Zelensky said – the situation is getting difficult
A massive fire broke out at an electrical substation in Ukraine's port city of Odesa, bringing the entire system to a standstill. About 5 lakh people are forced to live without electricity. Officials say that it may take several weeks to fix it.
Meanwhile, Ukraine has appealed to Turkey for help. He has been asked to send high-power generators through the Black Sea. The mercury has reached minus 2 degrees due to the bitter cold in Odessa. During this, the problems of the people have increased due to the lack of electricity.
Vladimir Adoratsky, CEO of the state grid operator, told that all the equipment had already been weakened by the Russian attacks, and now it is no longer usable at all due to the fire. He said that if Russia launches more attacks, the situation will get worse.
Meanwhile, Ukrainian Prime Minister Denis Schmihal has ordered that high-power generators from other parts of the country be sent to Odesa as soon as possible. He also told the country's foreign minister to appeal to Turkey to send power plants to them through power ship vessels.
At the same time, Zelensky said on Saturday that the situation on the battlefield is becoming difficult. Russia is constantly throwing its soldiers into battle. He described the situation in Ukraine's Bakhmut, Vulhedar and Liman as uncontrollable.
In fact, for a long time, Russia has been carrying out rapid attacks in Bakhmut with Private Army Group Wagner. Along with this, it has also claimed to take this area under its control. Ukraine says that now it is trying to rapidly capture the Vulhedar area as well.
