Interior Minister Ihor Klymenko confirmed on Tuesday that ten individuals have lost their lives due to snowstorms in Ukraine. The country has been affected by icy winds and storms since Sunday, causing power outages and road blockages, especially in the southern regions.
“As a result of worsening weather conditions, 10 people died in Odesa, Kharkiv, Mykolaiv and Kyiv regions,” Klymenko wrote on the Telegram app.
“Twenty-three people were injured, including two children,” he added.
A total of 411 settlements in 11 regions had lost power, and more than 1,500 vehicles had to be rescued, Klymenko said.
