MOSCOW. Feb 27 (Interfax) - Engineers have partially restored power supply to critical infrastructure in the city of Odessa and the surrounding area, Ukrainian media have reported with reference to the DTEK power company's social media post.

"As of noon [1:00 p.m. Moscow Time], all hospitals, boiler rooms, pump stations, and other critical infrastructure in the Kievsky district of Odessa were powered up. Some of the critical infrastructure elements were also powered up in the Suvorovsky and Malinovsky districts of the city and the Odessa district of the region," DTEK said.
