Electricity has been restored to almost all parts of the Ukrainian capital, Kyiv, four days after a devastating attack on its infrastructure, according to the Kyiv military administration.

Military authorities said that by Sunday morning, most power, water, heating and mobile phone services were back on. She added that the final work continues on the electricity network, but the high demand may lead to outages at the local level.

Kyiv Mayor Vitali Klitschko, who has criticized President Volodymyr Zelensky for the slowness in restoring services, told German newspaper Bild that work was proceeding at a “record pace”.
