Heavy Snow Hits Kyiv Amid Russian Attacks

Heavy snowfall is expected to hit Kyiv with temperatures dropping below freezing point day and night – as millions of people still living in and around the Ukrainian capital struggle with little access to electricity and heat.

Snow is expected on Sunday in Kyiv, a city that had 2.8 million residents before the war, and will continue until midweek with temperatures forecast to stay below freezing.

Ukraine’s power grid operator Ukrenergo said that electricity producers were able to cover only three-quarters of consumption needs, necessitating restrictions and blackouts across the country.

Sergey Kovalenko, chief operating officer of YASNO, which provides energy to the capital, said the situation in the city had improved but remained “quite difficult”. He indicated that residents should have at least four hours of power per day, and said those receiving less than that amount should contact his agency.

President Volodymyr Zelenskyy said six million people were without power across the country after the latest Russian bombardment left them without light, water or heat.
