At about 8 p.m. local time, the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation launched missile strikes on the largest thermal power plants in eastern and central Ukraine. As a result several regions of Ukraine were left without water and electricity.
According to the local reports, the Kharkiv CHPP-5 and Zmievskaya CHPP in the Kharkiv region, the Pavlograd CHPP-3 in the Dnipropetrovsk region, the Kremenchug thermal power plant in the Poltava region were hit but Russian missiles. The collapse of the general power system has spread to the networks of Kharkiv, Sumy, Dnipropetrovsk, Zaporozhye and Odessa regions. It also affected the areas of Donetsk regions controlled by the Ukrainian Armed Forces, the Kiev region and the capital of the country. The missiles were likely launched from the Black and Caspian Seas.
Ukrainian president Zelensky confirmed that the Kharkiv and Donetsk regions (territories under the AFU control) were completely de-energized. The Zaporozhie, Dnepropetrovsk and Sumy partially suffered from the energy cut.
Fire at the Kharkiv CHPP-5 :
The metro stopped in the city of Kharkiv:
Electric trains stood up almost all over the country, in Poltava several trolleybuses caught fire right on the streets:
Most of the Ukrainian energy infrastructure facilities are located in the southeastern regions of the country. On September 11, the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation hit key thermal power plants in the northeast and as a result, they de-energized several Northern and Eastern regions of Ukraine.
The power system of Ukraine failed and as a result of the imbalance of the power system, the Yuzhnoukrainskaya and Khmelnitsky nuclear power plants began shutting down power units due to the lack of the possibility of transferring the generated electricity to the grid.
The situation in Ukraine was complicated by the shutdown of the last working unit of the Zaporozhye NPP on the night of September 11. The last unit was stopped as a result of the regular strikes by the AFU on the facility. The Zaporozhie NPP also provided electricity to the territories under Ukrainian control. Prior to that, Ukrainian power engineers disconnected 750 kV and 330 kV power lines from the station. All this has led to a significant decrease in the stability of the country’s energy system.
The accident was localized by disconnecting the western and central regions of Ukraine from the eastern and southern ones. Later, work began on restoring power supply in local segments of the Ukrainian power system. Reserve capacities are being connected, energy is being redistributed from hydroelectric power plants on the Dnieper and power lines in the western part of the country.
The Russian Ministry of Defence is yet to confirm the attacks.
In Ukraine, there were 15 thermal power plants in 2022. All of them were built in Soviet times. That is, since 1991, the number of thermal power plants built in Ukraine is zero. All the existing thermal power plants were built by the communists from the 50s to the 80s. Despite this fact, the Kiev regime continues its decommunization policy in an attempt to instigate hatered to Russia.
Each destroyed thermal power plant is actually an irretrievable loss for Ukraine. Today, two main thermal power plants of Left-Bank Ukraine were put out of service. So far, temporarily.
As for the nuclear power plants, there were four of them in Ukraine: Zaporizhia, Rivne, Khmelnitsky and Yuzhnoukrainskaya in the Mykolaiv region. There are 15 reactors in total, six of which belong to the Zaporozhie NPP, which provides about 40% of electricity generation of all the nuclear power plants and about 20% of the country’s energy balance. The city of Energodar where the Zaporozhie NPP is located has long been under the control of the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation. Last night, the last power unit at the NPP stopped.
Kiev found itself in a difficult situation. The affected power units can probably be restored in the coming days, but the shelling has significantly complicated the supply of military equipment to the front line, including from the western regions of Ukraine and from abroad, since electric trains have stopped in Ukraine. Today’s attacks are a clear sign for the Kiev regime.
So far, the Russian military has waged a “soft” war, avoiding attacks on strategic infrastructure facilities in Ukraine in an attempt to minimize damage to the civilian population. Such a strategy has already slowed down the Russian advance on the battlefields and increased losses among the Russian military, since Kiev almost did not face obstacles when sending echelons with foreign military equipment and foreign mercenaries to the front line through the bridges on the Dnieper River which are also yet to be destroyed. Amid Russia’s recent losses in the Kharkiv region, the Russian military has probably switched to tougher methods of warfare, which are necessary for victory.
On the other hand, the Russian side is yet to confirm the attacks. There is a chance that Kiev struck at its own facilities in order to blame Russia for the attacks and justify military actions on the Russian territory, while Ukrainian forces are approaching the Russian border in the Kharkov region.

Expected. Dictator Putin is losing the war on the front in Ukraine, so now he is taking revenge on the civilian population. Nothing new.
You just lost the war hoholnazitrash 🤣
The Jew media is waging a 5th generation propaganda war on all electronic fronts. The reality on the ground is far different, I am too experienced to fall for Uki assholes and their NATO/Zionist masters propaganda. Russia is doing fine and just needs to ramp up attacks and take out the C3I. Don’t be fooled by the silly propaganda saying Ukraine has made huge gains. They have made gains but not major. Russian and Pro-Russian forces control over 120,000(low estimate) sq kms of what is known as Ukraine. This week UA gained back control of 2,000 ( 1.6%). Facts. and PS : FUCK UKRAINE!
No, ukraine has gained ~ 10,000 km2 in 5 days
No FACTS there bud, even according to Jew media. Check your FACTS.
Ukraine has retaken more than 1,000 sq km (390 sq miles) of territory and over 20 villages, the president, Volodymyr Zelenskiy, …
Do you know what means 1.000 sq km ? It is clear you don’t. That means 30×30 km square, which is pure bullshit. Russia lost 200.000 sq km by retreating from ALL north Kharkov front. Good night, Russia !.
You are clearly misinformed. Rattle that head a little, get some brain cells moving… Think… Ukraine, with the help of the world, cannot fight their way out of a wet paper bag. They have proven it time and time again. It is a slaughter, not a conflict. Ukraine is toast.
The same President who gave us the Ghost of Kiev and not to mention Snake Island. Yeah, you can really take his word, when looking for facts and evidence. Remind me, where are the Ukraine Opposition, these days?
Exposed: The vast pro-Ukrainian ‘bot army’ designed to influence Western policy makers An investigation has exposed a vast coordinated network online by western intelligence agencies and military troll farms. The UK is leading the propaganda offensive against Russia.
Nope, Russia loosed more than 200.000 sq km by retreating the whole north Kharkov front. You’re 2.000 is pure bullshit.
Have you seen the research that has come out of Adelaide University, Australia? Not a Russian bias nation. The research was on BOT Farms, with a pro-Ukraine take. Allegedly, 80% of the pro-Ukraine propaganda-comments, come from the BOT Farms.
A shame they did not go into the funding, as the UK Government are spending £millions on Russian Media Disinformation Trolls. Together with many other NATO and EU members, including the US.
What you faglet nazis did to Donbass and Lughansk since 2014. Well karma is a biatch… This was only the start of a real war. You wanted it. You have it…
It’s also Serbian karma, when NATO began hitting civilian infrastructure wholesale in a bid to make Belgrade cry uncle, after it found it had a hard time hitting Yugo tank decoys from 20,000 ft up.
Yeah, but UNMIK uncovered a full 4,000 casualties of unknown status in the Kosovo genocide after a two year search. How many civilian casualties in the Donbass, smarty pants?
Seems Scholzy gets his history lessons off the back of cereal cracker boxes.
I can understand such idiots gaining traction in America but Europe, what the fucK? Is it something in the water? Imported Twinkies? What’s up, Euros? Save yourselves before it’s too late.
Europeans are for at least 70 years till now fed with cerebral chemical blockers and fluoride waters INTENTIONAL, by the Kalergi ring of khazar fake jews EU deep state puppeteers.
They did indeed want it. So why their complaints? Sheesh, I’ve tried to steer clear of such hypocrites all my life. Must be from a bad or spoiled upbringing or something.
Russian nationalists are advocating a far more robust campaign and mass mobilization and total war as the Uki assholes are totally supported by NATO cowards and 60 assorted vassals from shitholes like Australia to Pakistan. The next step should be to take out all infrastructure in Kiev and stick a Kalibr up the Jew rat Zelensky’s ass. FUCK UKRAINE!
A limited draft wouldn’t be the most popular thing, but might be the right thing if RU cannot spare another 100k-300k from the mainland. Right now many are detecting UK trollfarm type psyop operations to seed forum messages with anti-Putin messages from pretend be pro-Russian posters (eg messages being ~ “Putin really messed this military op up, it’s all Putin’s fault”-type of hysteria) This is a seeding psyop meant to get especially dumb masses to perpetuate this within the Russian audience. So the hope is that such movement, combined with a politically unpopular move of starting a limited military draft, would create an easy target for yet another externally influenced color revolution.
And this ~+200k would be sufficient for the scope of the special operation and to regain the recent lost ~(55km)^2 of land in the north, plus up to a limited area of Odessa region.
However these additional 100k-300k probably are not enough to address the longer term threat that such a regime poses to Russia. And we have seen a glimpse of the scale of evil of this regime in what they did to their own people, just to package it up as their Bucha psyop, the Kramatorsk false flag, the gamble of a Chenobryl 2 that would affect much of EU, ontop of a vast string of other warcrimes since 2014. And a regime that has conducted psyops on their population for the past 10 years, to mislead them, to radicalize them with nationalist and anti-RU sentiment, and to conduct a long term political policy to with a 100% goal of leading to a war with Russia. And then to make it a bloody war, multiplying bloodshed and the victims of their population that they can blame Russia for. We are talking satanic level evil.
If a huge amount of airpower is used, an addition of 300k should be enough to negate the long term threat. It’s a shitty thing to slog through but from everything I sense it seems the right decision.
Good sensible analysis. There is a good article written by a Syrian journalist with strong connections to Russian military Ridwan Abdul Rahman who has cast doubts on the almost all the nonsense propaganda the western and Zionist troll farms are pumping out relentlessly. Russia is a richest SUPERPOWER and initiated this action in Ukraine with some misgivings about the extent of NATO support and involvement and some intelligence failures. However, there is no way on earth that Russia will “lose”. Russian closest friends the Chinese, Iranians, Syrians, DPRK and most of the fence sitters including India and rest of the non-Zionist world will not tolerate a NATO “victory”.
The Uki assholes are led by NATO officers and given the best weaponry the NATO faggots can muster along with realtime intel, however, the limited Russian force, barely 90,000 combat component has tied down all of NATO and killed 60% of AFU Nazis. Russia can decimate Ukraine with around 250,000 troops and they may have to call up some reserves. Russia has 70 million military age manpower and enough reserves to fight till eternity. And that does not include Russian populations in the old USSR and allies like Iran, DPRK and above all China. If China starts transferring weapons and uses its immense economic leverage, the NATO scum will be eating shit in a month. Russia just needs to keep taking out Ukrainian C3I and also freeze the EU faggots. Russians are very nationalistic people and now they can clearly see the NATO evil and that is conflict is not about Ukraine, but about an existential Anglo-Zionist NATO threat to the Russian people, Russian land and Russian future. So they will collectively say FUCK UKRAINE and FUCK NATO! This ain’t over till the fat lady sings. Just have a look at the repulsive British health secretary and Liz Truss and you will appreciate my point. These bastards are waging 5th generation propaganda was that is mostly aimed at their own brainwashed delusional populations. Once these EU assholes start freezing, they will get the message. Most NATO failed states are on the verge of social and political implosion and their Bilderberg appointed corrupt governments are in desperate mode and the 5th generation propaganda war on Russia will only increase.
1.They are not troll farms in a pure sense. They are bots combined with libtard snowflakes and Eastern European grifters. Look up terms “botwiki” and “twitter bots”. Jens holm is a perfect example how AI bots sound. It sounds very intelligible and human, but it is totally meaningless when you analyze the text.
2. These are not really UK psyops, but hypnosis/cultural animal herding methods from Ukropizdan. All xoxols are grifters. For them, manipulation is their first nature.
3. There seems to be a secret political agreement regarding Kharkiv oblast. Russians withdrew from the whole oblast without any contact with xoxol volkssturm, apart of small skirmishes around a village of Balakleya.
You will have to learn the ruthenian nazi hohol language in max 2 decades in Russia and you will even don’t know why that was happened. Without any ukrop military deeds but by only the infection spread from Kiev. If you think you outsmart Satan, you’re an imbecile.
No, tough you reach some points. The SINGLE argument for Putin sincerity vs. its NATION is to order arrest for SHOIGU ! That HISTORIC DEFEAT and SHAME with extremely harsh consequences for Russia as a whole cannot be explained WITHOUT that step ! That clearly would show that Putin is not in bed with the khazar jew traitor generals and he is a sincere patriot took as a useful idiot by his army HQ. Not doing so means they are ALL knew theat fucking scenario staged theater and MUST be jailed/executed as soon as possible. I know the answer right now. Motorola, Zakharchenko, Mozgovoi, Bolotov, Mikhail Tolstykh, and many other REAL russian patriots were assassinated by Putin KGB because they would NEVER allow this staged theater to happen.
Adelaide University did some research on the BOT Farms, covering Pro-Ukraine coverage, in comment sections on social media. Finding 80% came from BOT Farms, no doubt also using AI as well as the Government (tax payer funded) trolls.
The UK spends £millions, as you say, on the trolls. 77th Squadron, Belingcat, Statecraft, Integrity Initiative, Open Information Partnership, just for starters.
Then you have the EU and what they spend on Russian Media Disinformation Trolls, together with NATO, US and the ‘5 Eye Nations’. It would be interesting for those BOT Farms to have an audit check and for the tax payers, from all nations involved, to find out exactly how much they are forking out on these trolls, that will take us into WWIII and the end of the Planet.
That degenerate jew rat would love such an anal assault. He’d have Bibi and his kosher clown fags over for a gay gang bang.
What are Ukraine men and equipment losses v Russian losses in the last week
You mean like Nato did in Serbia? those Nato bitches made the rules.
Ukraine NATO and the roaches have pissed off the Russian Bear.
Russia will now fight the war without surgical strikes. Ukrainian soldiers entered those cities dressed in civilian cloths while smuggling in their weapons.
Just as Ukraine decided to play dirty they have pissed off the Russian bear.
Now Russia knows every single cell phone is an eye and ear for the CIA who are coordinating with the Ukrainian soldiers. Cell phones give away locations especially when pictures are sent.
Satellites owned and controlled by NATO are all pointed at Russian soldiers and command centers. The question is will the global positioning satellites have to be taken out to render NATO weapons in Ukraine useless?
What would NATO do? Nothing if they know an ICBM is pointed at each and every one of them.
Topols and SARMAT will be the big stick that keeps the NATO temper tantrum in check
World war 3 is a go !
They waiting a lot to destroy the infrastructures,can be late now or is time to use the Aleppo system,tabula rasa
It was destroyed in 60mins… Next.
Most of Ukrainistan is under the spell of darkness now. Russian jets have taken out a large part of the grid.
Russia is using 125k troops out of 1,250,000 it has at home. Seems very unlikely they’ll get beat out of anything. Wishful Zelensky cokehead propaganda at best.
They tried to be decent. But now that the cold weather is coming, it’s time to make the citizens of western Ukraine, that supported Maidan and Zelensky, to shiver in the dark, and drink from puddles.
Violent crime rising in major US cities: Survey Wait till the Euro-fags start freezing. SLAVA ROSSIYA!
What up now hohol bitches….
Sorry, flying off to Washington for an emergency pow wow. We’ll get back to you.
All good here, and you still losing
Losing power stations cokehead?
Russia rendered glorious ukronazisisbanderistan back to 1870 in 40mins. More to follow…
P.S. CIAtrolls and ukrobots are crying and raging 🤗
If in order to wipe out the nazi part of Ukrops population it is required to completely erase “Ukraine” as a nation, this is a perfectly acceptable price to pay. Ukraine didn’t exist (well they did but as Russians) before the creation of the USSR, if they hate the Soviet Union so much then let us do them a favor and return them to their previous state of non-existence which they apparently prefer and work hard towards. :)
The time for talk is long over, you cannot reason with inhuman savage beasts, put them out of their misery! It’s the only humane thing to do, if they willingly devote their entire existence to serving NATO, then their existence should cease.
You don’t understand regional history. You are making maniacal statements like a real Nazi.
Thermal stations cant be restored. They were destroyed.
They can in a matter or years or decades. So until then, it is lights out.
Pass the candles & toilet paper.
Great now take down all the Bridges all over Ukraine and all the railways and airports.
That should have be done in day 1. Not doing so, means 2 things: 1. Putin is a long range khazar jew traitor 2. Russian army is full of incompetence.
At last, the sleepy headed bear has finally woken up and started to take out critical infrastructure. They should have done this kind of shit in March FFS!
I do support more decisive war effort but timing of this attack is so bad; this looks like a petty revenge against civilians.
no i don’t think so they have been very very careful before BUT NOW i think a declaration of war will be announced by Russia and i pity the NAZI NATO troops in Ukraine as they will be DEAD VERY SHORTLY and now Russia has decided enough is enough 3 armies waiting at the border ready to roll thats over 1 million men and machines Russia has ready … RUN YOU NAZI UKRAINE SCUM RUN … RUN NAZI NATO SCUM RUN … your time for judgement is here and Russia is about to DESTROY YOU ALL. =Z= LONG LIVE RUSSIA.
I look at it more as a long overdue revenge over Donbass civilians.
It is a necessary strategy. The ukros have been able to move their men around the country very quickly with having their rail network but the Russians take a very long time to shift men and tanks along the long front line from one place to another, by ROAD. The sheer amount of men and tanks being shifted gave Ukraine a large advantage when all of their rail network has been operating. When Men and tanks are being transported INTO Ukraine and then amassing in vast numbers to strike, taking out the ukro electricity network will prevent their swift mass movements. Russia should have done this sooner.
Never heard about diesel locomotives and trailer tractors?
Correct. Here is FULL of so-called russian patriots. Most are imbecile youngsters without any experience of life, others are useful idiots extremely used by the Kiev propaganda junta. Russia will fail in the end with those hordes of proPutinists still dreaming what a good leader he is/was. Here in Ro we had SAME 100% SITUATION in ’89, when a SAVIOUR emerged from the anticommunist ether to save the country from it’s commie regime and legacy. 99% of the romanians adored him, voted him and supported him. Was Iliescu, a former rejected commie who played a double role. He managed finally after 15 years to enslave the country for NATO and EU and to totally cancel the national sovereignty. Imbecile russians patriots are blind useful idiots like we were. When they will see the catastrophe will be too LATE, as we got.
Correct. High treason on the highest level. Idiot imbeciles ‘patriot’ russian lunatics are outsmarted again by the khazar jews.
Ucraniano prende una vela por la Paz . Te conviene
When he can state exactly who is attacking the plant, without worrying about upsetting NATO Members States, then Russia might take him seriously. Otherwise, he is a waste of space with no backbone.
I’m sorry, he is not a waste of space with no backbone. His mouth should be connected to one of the turbines, and what hot air out of it, will power Ukraine.
Very well said, AM.
The UN in general is just an appendage of the US and UK, both are covered in crabs and puss.
It is the MONEY creators.
The IAEA reminds me of a cup of McDonald’s coffee. So watered down, you can see their cheap little plastic stirrer at the bottom of it.
Can you spell war crime?
Mr. Putin bomb the bridges where weapons are being sent to the east. Keep bombing Ukraine’s life lines. This is a war now, the Special Operation ended when USrael started sending heavy weapons to Ukraps. This is a war, fight like it..
Some reports I have read says that Ukraine are bombing the plants themselves.
If that were true, what is the advantage the Ukros get? Perhaps a justification to attack Russian territory… but they have done it already! O the other hand, they will be limited in moving reinforcements to the fronts.
That is very possible.
Western Ukraine should have been targeted earlier. You don’t want to harm civilians, but you do want to wreck the will of the people so they stop supporting the war and Zelensky. Putting the western part of the country in the dark is a good start. I urge the Russian high command to study William Tecumseh Sherman, and make Western Ukraine howl (Sherman said he would do that to the south).
Putin had been nice the past 7 months. He tried to avoid hurting civilians. He tried to make a peace deal. And Ukraine has consistently partook in treachery and inhumane activities. So I urge Russia to read up on William Tecumseh Sherman, and bring pain to the civilians that support the regime in Kiev. So turn off their lights. Close down their energy supplies. And return them to the 1800’s. Then they will change their views and stop supporting the Jew in Kiev, and force their government to sue for peace.
Of course, because he is losing on the front, now destroying the civilian infrastructure. Nothing new for dictator Putin.
Nothing new for NATO either. Right out of their playbook in fact. Time to cope, you creepy cop.
I can always put my finger on a gung ho Yank. They’re always the ones who love to dish it out but scream like little kiddies when forced to take it.
A big finger to you, kiddies. It’s good medicine. Builds character, something you’ve lacked for decades.
Putin got outsmarted by hired Jewish comedian and senile old man in White house .. very humiliating for Russia. Maybe all those lazy asses in Moscow finally start taking the situation seriously.
Vaporize all of Ukraine and turn it into a reservoir! Go Team Putin! FUCK THE USSA!
This is a one-time strike to prevent further offensive in Kharkiv front for a few days and allow reorganization of the reinforcements that arrived. RU isn’t going to use this to attack anywhere apart from slowly but surely progress in the Donbas front. Winter is coming, RU will happily sit back and observe further 6 months of Western agony.
Long term, when they take out the Donbas front and liberate it 100%, then the task will be accomplished and they will seek negotiations with UKR and the west. Since the west won’t negotiate, RU will work in different ways other than military to remove the current UKR gov and set up a new one that will be willing to negotiate a neutral status and release of Donbas, recognition of Crimea, and potentially if Kherson or Zaporozia break off (which I believe will not happen in the end if a friendly government is installed).
If this is not the true purpose of this conflict, I simply do not see a favorable outcome… Russia can’t have an endless war on their border with Ukrainians getting more and more radicalized, they would literally never relent, it would be worse than the middle-east. Things don’t look good for the world as it’s going now, this chaos will only spread and make the world more fragile, let’s hope that something constructive happens in near future. In any case, the real change may come from EU where governments will be toppled this winter.
This action is LONG overdue
6 months too late. This should have happened on Day 1.
Moscow cadres still live in delusions of quick easy victory
Eh, slow painful victory’s just as good. Maybe they’ll drag it out 8 years just for the sake of symmetry.
NATO does it even before day 1, to soften up the field and make sure no precious NATO troops’ hair is mussed.
Don’t stop with just the power infrastructure. Go for EVERYTHING. Telco, railway, water supply, government buildings etc. EVERYTHING.
THE GLOVES ARE OFF, Russia has been so far VERY VERY RESTRAINED well NOW you have pushed too far and NOW there ill be a DECLARATION OF WAR from Russia against Ukraine and then ALL 3 ARMIES WAITING AT THE BORDER WILL ROLL FORWARD that is over 1 million soldiers about to invade NAZI Ukraine, and NATO and FOREIGNER mercenaries are about to be KILLED OUTRIGHT ON SIGHT and ALL of Ukraine will be ANNEXED back into Russia … RUN NATO RUN FOR YOUR LIVES YOU NAZI SCUM … =Z=
Not really, merely a stopgap response to slow Orkranian logistics and contain junta psyops.
They need to hit equipment concentrations and seriously demilitarize units of the Orkranian offensive by airpower and ballistics. This time they won’t just be hitting forced green conscripts sent by Zelenzky into the meat grinder (in front of azov and foreign legion “anti-retreat” units who stand much further back from front zero line to shoot their own countrymen should they retreat without order to retreat). Right now you have limited time of hitting neo nazis concentrations near the front.
The junta does not care about its people, other than slightly and only as a resource worth, and as masses to be weaponized and controlled by psyops. The junta does care about its neo nazis (official embedded and unofficial partners), as these are crucial for its survival. (The junta is primarily driven by self survival motivations—one of the defining characteristics of juntas in general.)
Very educative website for American readers of South Front. https://patriots.win
This means, this is just day one of a dedicated attack on infrastructure. I have a feeling, Russia can produce a lot of missiles a day from their factories. The citizens of Ukraine should stock up on candles, not only for light, but for heat.
