Ukraine says Kharkiv power station hit in ‘revenge’ for Russian defeats

Russian strikes have knocked out power and water to much of the Kharkiv region, plunging its cities into darkness and cutting power in hospitals in what Ukraine described as an act of 'revenge' by Russia because of its recent battlefield defeats. Over the last few days, Ukrainian forces have recaptured the majority of Russian-occupied territory in the region. Videos posted to social media have shown Ukrainian troops raising the nation’s flag over villages and towns recaptured from Russia in the Kharkiv region.
