Ukraine has said its energy facilities have come under a “massive” attack from Russia overnight, in the latest onslaught targeting the country’s power grid.

It is the eighth time Russia has launched an attack on energy infrastructure facilities in the past three months, Ukraine’s energy ministry said.

Air defence systems shot down 12 of 16 missiles and all 13 drones launched by Russia at several regions through the night, the Ukrainian air force said.

Two energy workers were wounded and taken to hospital in the Zaporizhzhia region, and energy equipment was damaged in the Western city of Lviv, officials added.
