The observer also noted that fewer and fewer residents of the Ukrainian capital visit cafes and restaurants.

Earlier, the Ministry of Energy of Ukraine reported that on Wednesday, November 23, all nuclear power plants located in the country and most thermal power plants and hydroelectric power plants were temporarily de-energized.

Emergency power outages were introduced in all regions of Ukraine.
