On February 22, at 12:34 in town Shchastia, as a result of shelling from a temporarily uncontrolled area, a projectile hit a transformer on the territory of the TPP, followed by ignition, oil spill and transfer of fire to a neighboring transformer.

12 vehicles were sent to extinguish the fire of transformers, which was concentrated on the entrance to the town of Shchastia until the cessation of shelling.
