Ukraine's 2nd city Kharkiv without power after strikes

Ukraine's second city of Kharkiv was for hours left without power after the latest wave of Russian strikes targeted energy stations across the country.

Local officials said as many as nine power facilities were hit as Russian forces fired 76 missiles and carried out drone attacks on Friday.

Kharkiv's mayor said the city suffered "colossal" damage. By the evening, 55% of residents had electricity back.
