    Odesa has been hit again this weekend, power situation very bad ...

    Ukraine’s Odesa plunged into darkness after energy facilities hit
    Zelenskyy said that more than 1.5 million people in the southern Ukrainian port city were without electricity.


    President Volodymyr Zelenskyy said on Saturday that more than 1.5 million people in the southern Ukrainian port city of Odesa and the surrounding region had no electricity, and he described the situation as very difficult.

    All non-critical infrastructure in Odesa was left without power after Russia used Iranian-made drones to hit two energy facilities, Ukrainian authorities said, adding it could take months to repair the damage.

    “As of now, the city is without electricity,” Kyrylo Tymoshenko, deputy head of the presidential administration, said on messaging app Telegram.

    Only critical infrastructure, including hospitals and maternity wards, had access to electricity.

    Russia began targeting Ukraine’s infrastructure as they withdrew after suffering humiliating military defeats.

    On Thursday, Russian President Vladimir Putin promised to keep battering Ukraine’s energy grid despite an outcry against the attacks that have plunged millions into cold and darkness as temperatures dipped.

    The regional administration said people who relied solely on electricity to power their homes should consider leaving.

    Officials said Russian strikes hit key transmission lines and equipment in the early hours of Saturday.

    “According to preliminary forecasts, it will take much more time to restore energy facilities in the Odesa region than after previous attacks,” the administration said.

    “We are talking not about days, but even weeks and possibly even two to three months,” it said in a Facebook post.

    I have asked Onkai if she can cover the Sunday Sit if Washin cannot be there and I will be there for Tonglen tonight.

    I am sorry that Ukraine continues to experience so many attacks on its infrastructure which are just so inhumane in the winter weather.

    The Sunday Sit for Peace is a lovely tradition I'm glad to keep going, but the situation in Ukraine is heartbreaking.

    Gassho,

    I have a lot to learn; take anything I say that sounds like teaching with a grain of salt.

    Sat for peace in Ukraine and the world (on demand).
    May the violence end and human beings stop destroying lives - it feels me with sadness an even guilty for what people do to each other.
    May Washin be back with us for peaceful sitting next Sunday.
