Electricity supply partially restored in Kupyansk, road works underway
According to the head of Kharkiv Regional Military Administration (RMA) Oleh Syneyhubov, who visited Kupyansk on Oct. 12, the power supply has been restored in most parts of the city. Pharmacies and shops will start operating soon, as well as the bank services and Ukrposhta (the national postal service in Ukraine). The works on the restoration of the gas supply are underway.
“Special attention is paid to the medical infrastructure: we restore the damaged premises and provide the necessary medicines so that people can receive emergency care. One of the priority tasks is to restore the highways and crossings. The so-called “road of life”, which runs through the entire city and connects two banks (of the river), was destroyed by the occupiers. This is both the delivery of humanitarian aid and the route of the ambulance. We ask people not to rush back to their homes, as one of the most difficult winters is ahead,” wrote Syneyhubov on his official Telegram.
As of Oct. 12, the Armed Forces of Ukraine have liberated 91% of the territory of Kharkiv Oblast occupied by Russia.
