Russian overnight strikes completely destroyed Trypilska thermal power plant outside Ukraine's capital Kyiv, Interfax-Ukraine news agency quoted a senior company official as saying.

Russia staged a major missile and drone strike on Ukrainian energy infrastructure early on Thursday, damaging substations and power facilities in five regions and causing emergency power cuts for at least 200,000 people, Kyiv officials said. (Reporting by Pavel Polityuk; Editing by Andrew Cawthorne)
