On October 31, 10 of Ukraine's regions came under attack by Russian drones and missiles. Hundreds of towns and villages in seven regions experienced power outages as a result of strikes on critical infrastructure. Local media reported that the Dniester Hydroelectric Station, which is located approximately 23 kilometers away (14 miles) from Naslavcea in Ukraine’s Chernihiv region, was hit.
