A missile strike caused “serious” damage to an energy provider near the Ukrainian capital of Kyiv as Russian forces stepped up their campaign to cut off water and electricity throughout the country.

Electricity transmission company Ukrenergo said Saturday that emergency repair crews had been dispatched to the scene, but warned of power outages and asked residents to limit their use of electricity during peak nighttime hours, according to a report.

Kyiv region Gov. Oleksiy Kuleba said the strike did not kill or wound anyone.

The Kremlin is launching renewed missile strikes following a truck bomb explosion a week ago that damaged the bridge that links Russia to the annexed Crimean Peninsula.

Earlier this week, Russian attacks targeted residential buildings, killing dozens of people, and urban infrastructure such as power stations in the capital and other cities throughout the country.
