Millions across Ukraine are living under rolling blackouts and a lack of other key services such as running water, as Russia continues to target critical civilian infrastructure in the country.

“Myself I’m sitting now in Kyiv. My child, just 5 minutes from me [is] sitting in a dark flat”. It’s a reality that many are facing now, often with just “three to four hours of electricity” every day.
