Half of Moldova without power after Russian strikes on Lviv,Kiev, Ukraine

The Russian missile strikes on Ukraine's energy infrastructure have caused blackouts across half of neighbouring Moldova, says the deputy prime minister of Moldova.

"Massive blackout in Moldova after today's Russian attack on Ukraine's energy infrastructure," Andrei Spinu, who also serves as infrastructure minister, said on Twitter.

"Moldelectrica, TSO (transmission system operator), is working to reconnect more than 50% of the country to electricity."

Power outages were also reported in the breakaway Russian-backed region of Transdniestria, the local interior ministry said in a statement.

Russia has launched new missile strikes on western Ukraine, hitting at least one critical infrastructure target in Kyiv as explosions echoed across the capital. Three people were killed and six injured in Kyiv, according to city officials.

The western city of Lviv was left completely without power, according to its mayor. "The whole city is without power. We are waiting for additional information from energy experts," said Lviv Mayor Andriy Sadovyi on social media, warning that there may also be interruptions to the city's water supply.
