Today's attack alteres our plans to restore the generation, but at the same time, once again, the disaster did not happen. The Russians failed to achieve their goals for the 14th time," he emphasised.
According to Kudrytskyi, the situation in Kharkiv is really difficult.
"Over the weekend, we plan to restore the operation of some energy facilities that were damaged today. The critical infrastructure of Kharkiv [city] is restored. We are working to ensure that the situation with outages in Kharkiv approaches the situation in the country. But it will take some time," the head of Ukrenergo explained.
"We still need to assess the extent of the destruction to say more precisely when we will be able to correct the situation in Khmelnytskyi Oblast. We will work over the weekend.
We still have to work on completely restoring facilities around Odesa, which provide power to the city and Odesa district. But the situation has improved compared to what happened on Saturday and Sunday. It was announced that the local Oblenergo [an oblast electricity distributor – ed.] is testing the planned power outage schedules," he summarised.

Macron does not rule out supplying aircraft to Ukraine but says it is not a priority.
Emmanuel Macron, President of France, has said that he prefers supplying weapons that are "more useful" and "faster" than military aircraft as part of France' military aid for Ukraine.
Fighter aircraft can "under no circumstances" be delivered "in the coming weeks", Macron explained early on Friday morning.
He also said, "I am not ruling anything out."
He explained that supplying aircraft would not "meet today's needs" and that it was better to help Ukraine with other priorities, such as Caesar guns. France announced last week that it will supply the guns to Ukraine.
Zelenskyy insisted that Ukraine needs fighter aircraft to end the war with Russia during his European visits on Wednesday and Thursday this week.
The French President told the press that his "thorough and detailed" discussion with President Zelenskyy, which took place on Wednesday in Paris, had underscored that the priority is "doing everything to help [Ukraine] resist in the coming weeks" and "conducting proper operations in the spring and summer if we then want also to be able to carry out diplomatic actions.
"It is essential that the allies give priority to the equipment that is the most useful" and "the fastest", Macron added, saying that the Caesar guns and the MAMBA medium-range ground-air defence systems supplied by France met these criteria.
He said it may be necessary to "ramp up" deliveries of "artillery systems that can be used to launch ground offensives or defend" existing Ukrainian positions and promised to "work on this in the coming days".
