Infrastructure and communications damage in Ukraine

Since Russia's full-scale invasion of Ukraine, Russia has often targeted points of civilian infrastructure, such as power supplies, leading to power outages. Another example is a cyberattack on Kyivstar, a Ukrainian mobile operator, which caused some significant disruption in communication systems. Memes about the impact of such events often relate to their ubiquity. Some memes point to increased personal appeal for those who have power generators or different mobile providers, and others communicate that these damages only increase Ukrainians' hatred toward Russia. Many memes indicate that the temporary loss of electricity is one of the main accomplishments of the Russian military, a trifle compared to the stated goals of Russia's invasion.
