Power and water supply have been largely restored in the city of Kherson, officials say

Officials in the recently liberated city of Kherson in southern Ukraine say two critical services have been largely restored after Russian strikes damaged infrastructure.


Kherson city’s power supply is back to 85% across town, according to local officials.

That marks a significant improvement in the southern city over recent days.

After being restored to roughly three-quarters capacity Friday, the city had been cut off from electricity entirely by Russian shelling.

By Saturday, power was restored to 75% in the city, and then Sunday marked another improvement.


Seventy percent of residents now have water supplied in their homes, Yanushevych wrote on Telegram.

The city’s pumping station had been without power due to the Russian strikes that knocked energy grids offline.
