Russia has launched a "new massive strike" targeting Ukraine’s energy grid, Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky has said.

He added that the attacks were on a "very wide" scale, hitting regions in Ukraine’s west, centre, south and east.

In an evening address, Mr Zelensky said power had been restored in multiple areas where it had been cut off.

Officials had said earlier on Saturday that nearly 1.5 million households had been left without electricity.

In his video, Mr Zelensky added that most of the Russian missiles and drones were being shot down, and such strikes would not stop a Ukrainian military advance.
