Ukraine announces ‘strategic requisitions’ of five companies for war effort – World News

The Ukrainian government has decided to take control of five companies which included engine maker Sich PJSC and oil producer Ukrnafta PJSC, according to a report on Bloomberg. Oleksiy Danilov, secretary of the National Security and Defense Council, said that the decision was taken to “help in the war effort” as the ongoing conflict with Russia wages on. The Ukrainian forces have regained a lot of ground in the past few months and the government is looking to use this move to boost their current position. 

Meanwhile, the Ukrainian capital of Kyiv continued to experience massive power cuts due to Russian attacks on key infrastructures around the city. Kyiv mayor Vitali Klitschko told the citizens on Monday that the situation can remain the same and they can face many similar situations during the winter.
