The fire hit the area in the north, around the city of Suraž, which is located approximately 75 kilometers from the border with Ukraine. Russia attacked it in February this year.

Another Russian region adjacent to Ukraine also reported problems on Wednesday night. According to the Russian-language BBC server, the governor of the Kursk region, Roman Starovojt, said that some districts bordering Ukraine are partially without electricity. Kyiv accused that it was attacking an energy facility on Russian territory.

The reports cannot be independently verified, Ukraine has not commented on the allegations.

Russia has been massively attacking Ukraine’s energy infrastructure since the beginning of October. The result is, among other things, extensive outages in the supply of electricity, heat and water. Ukrainian authorities also report civilian casualties after them.
