Russia attacks power facilities across Ukraine, including the largest hydroelectric plant, causing widespread outages and killing at least five people.

Russia attacked electrical power facilities across much of Ukraine, including the country's largest hydroelectric plant, causing widespread outages and killing at least five people, officials said Friday.

The plant is occupied by Russian troops, and fighting around the plant has been a constant concern because of the potential for a nuclear accident. The dam at the hydroelectric station was not in danger of breaching, the country's hydroelectric authority said. A dam breach could not only disrupt supplies to the nuclear plant but would potentially cause severe flooding similar to what occurred last year when a major dam at Kakhovka farther downstream on the Dnipro collapsed.
