Satellite imagery captured by Nasa shows one of the impacts Russia’s invasion of Ukraine has had: the amount of light emitted at night has fallen.
The first of these images, captured on February 3rd, shows the levels of light emitted across Ukraine prior to Russia’s invasion.
A capture from Wednesday shows the current situation, with far less light visible.
Multiple cities have suffered from loss of power since the invasion began.
The Ministry of Defence said on Monday that Irpin, outside Kyiv, has “reportedly been without heat, water or electricity for several days.”
Mariupol, in south eastern Ukraine, is also without electricity.
Before and after imagery released by the company Planet also illustrates the impact of Russia’s invasion.
The Antonov An-225, the world’s largest plane by length, is feared damaged amid intense fighting near Kyiv in late February.
Imagery captured on February 22nd shows the aircraft parked at Hostomel Airport, near Kyiv.
However, on February 28th, damage can be seen to the airport, with what appears to be the aircraft’s tail protruding from the grey hanger.
On March 3rd, Antonov said that “we cannot report on the technical condition of the aircraft”, amid concerns as to possible damage.
😨 NO NO NO NO…
Currently, until the #AN225 has been inspected by experts, we cannot report on the technical condition of the aircraft.
Please wait for the official announcements about the condition of the aircraft#StopRussia #Ukraine https://t.co/pEXDanePTw
