A significant service disruption has impacted Ukrtelecom, Ukraine's national telecoms operator.

The widespread issues come after a telecoms blackout in Sumy Oblast, and severe service disruptions in Kherson Oblast, as Russian forces damage power and telecoms infrastructure as part of a brutal invasion.
