Several Ukrainian cities are experiencing power outages as the Russian invasion rages on.

NetBlocks, a Global internet access tracker, has shared data highlighting widespread internet outages across Mariupol, Sumy and other regions of the country.

This comes alongside an increase in bombing campaigns and rocket fire from Russian units.

Alp Toker, director of NetBlocks, told ZDnet:

“Mariupol and Sumy are the main outage incidents we’re tracking today. Overall, at national level, observable connectivity is down some 20% compared to ordinary levels prior to the onset of conflict. The reduction in connectivity is attributed to power outages and the destruction of infrastructure in most of the major conflict zones, and the figure also reflects population flight as people leave home and shutter businesses.”
