An underground gas storage site in Ukraine was attacked on Sunday in the latest wave of Russian missile strikes on power facilities, while officials restored power in cities, ordered imports, and imposed rolling blackouts to deal with shortfalls.

Ukraine's state-run Naftogaz energy firm reported the attack on the gas storage site , but added that gas supplies to consumers had not been affected."The situation will not critically impact the UGS operations since the gas is stored deep underground," Chernyshov wrote on Facebook.

Volodymyr Kudrytskyi, head of Ukrenergo, which operates Ukraine's transmission lines, said the latest wave of strikes had caused damage of at least 90 million euros . Odesa regional governor Oleh Kiper, in a posting just after midnight on the Telegram messaging app, said parts of the city were without power after damage to infrastructure caused by a new night-time drone attack.The energy ministry said in a statement: "For the current day, electricity imports are forecast at 14,900 megawatt hours . No exports are expected.

The head of the Lviv region's military administration, Maksym Kozytskyi, later said firefighters had taken most of the day to bring the blaze under control.
