Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky warned the military and the public to be ready to face further Russian attacks.
According to the Reuters news agency, President Zelenskiy made the statement at a time when millions of citizens are already without electricity, water and heating facilities as a result of Russia’s targeting of energy installations, while the snowfall continues. It has also started.
“Terrorists are planning new attacks,” the Ukrainian president said in a video message. And it is true that they are going to do that. And as long as they have missiles, unfortunately they won’t sit back. Next week may be as difficult as last week.
The administration of the capital city of Kiev says that the restoration work of electricity, water and heating is nearing completion, but due to the increase in demand, there will be load shedding.
Russia has targeted energy facilities in recent weeks, inflicting the worst damage on Ukrainian civilians since invading Ukraine in February.
Russia says energy facilities have been targeted because of Ukraine’s refusal to negotiate.
According to the armed command of Ukraine, Russia has launched four missile attacks on the Dnipro region, while civilians were also targeted.
According to President Volodymyr Zelenskiy, heavy fighting continues on the front lines in many places in Ukraine, especially in the eastern Donetsk region.
The General Staff of the Armed Forces of Ukraine says that Russia shelled dozens of villages in eastern Donetsk.
On the other hand, heavy fighting continues in northeastern Kherson near areas that were retaken by Ukrainian forces from Russia in September and October.
It should be noted that at the beginning of November this month, Russia had withdrawn its army from the Kherson region of Ukraine, which was called an “extraordinary victory” of Ukraine. The city of Kherson is the only regional capital to be captured by Russia after the invasion and has been the focus of Ukraine’s counteroffensive.
