Ukraine’s second largest city, Kharkiv, was left without electricity after the latest wave of Russian attacks destroyed power plants across the country.

Officials said nine energy facilities were hit, while Russian forces fired 76 missiles and launched drone strikes across Ukraine.

The mayor of Kharkiv said the city had suffered “tremendous” damage from the bombing.

Resident Anastasia told the BBC she heard “several explosions” when the attacks began on Friday morning.
