A storm has devastated Russian fortifications in Crimea, causing flooding in one of the cities. Throughout Ukraine, intense snowfall occurred leaving almost 400 townships powerless.

Winter presents a significant challenge to the battling Ukrainians and Russians. As reported by Ukrainian Truth, a storm hitting occupied Crimea swept away the trenches built by the Russian armed forces.

Concurrently, the city of Eupatoria experienced severe flooding. This significantly damaged the coastline, fortifications, and firing positions.

Powerful winter assault in Ukraine

Ukrainian services were stretched to their limits due to the onslaught of winter. Heavy snowfall led to power outages in ten regions.

A total of 386 townships experienced power cuts. The worst conditions were seen in Odesa, Kirovohrad, and Mykolaiv regions.

Due to the severe weather conditions, the boiler house in Odessa had to be shut down, causing problems with the thermal energy supply. Local media reports that a section of the chimney on Paustovsky street fell off.

Until 7 p.m. on Sunday, in the Odessa region alone, rescue services intervened 75 times to manage the impact of the weather conditions. Assistance in towing vehicles from snow-covered road sections was given as many as 62 times.

In the Kirovohrad region, rescuers were called out 27 times, while in the Mykolaiv region, they intervened 18 times.
