Power, heating and water supplies were knocked out for millions of people. Hours after the attack, many areas of the country remained without essential services, as temperatures in the country hover around freezing.

The Ukrainian president also repeated Ukraine's invitation for a U.N. mission to visit energy facilities that have been or may be hit by Russian attacks.

"We need to have a proper assessment of the damage and destruction done," Zelenskyy said.

"I should note they're targeting the infrastructure that provides the power supply for tens of millions of people. It's unacceptable."

"The world should not be held hostage by one international terrorist."
