Ukraine President Volodymyr Zelensky addressed his nation Sunday night after reports of Russia firing upon civilian energy structures to obtain power in communities. Zelensky said the “terrorist acts” were deliberate because the 200-day war curves in to the winter weather.
“Even through the impenetrable darkness, Ukraine and the civilized world clearly see these terrorist acts,” Zelensky said through his Telegram account. “Deliberate and cynical missile strikes on civilian critical infrastructure. No military facilities. Kharkiv and Donetsk regions were take off. In Zaporizhzhia, Dnipropetrovsk, and Sumy you can find partial issues with power.”
Zelensky shared this Telegram video of the alleged attack.
Zelensky just one single day earlier said Ukraine’s 30-plus years of independence should come right down to 90 days of harsh winter in your community.
“This is actually the most challenging winter for your world. Russia does everything in 90 days of the winter to break the resistance of Ukraine, the resistance of Europe and the resistance of the planet. Because this is exactly what Russia hopes for, that is its last argument,” Zelensky said.
“You can find 90 days ahead, that may decide a lot more than 30 years of Ukraine’s independence. 90 days that may decide a lot more than all of the years of the existence of the EU. Winter will determine our future.”
On Sunday night, the Ukrainian president said his nation will prevail with or without food, gas or water, but that it could certainly be without Russia.
“Read lips: Without gas or without you? Without you. Without light or without you? Without you. Without water or without you? Without you. Without food or without you? Without you.
“Cold, hunger, darkness and thirst aren’t as terrible and deadly for all of us as your “friendship and brotherhood.”
Zelensky particularly calls upon his nation’s allies to accomplish their finest efforts in providing air defense against Russian strikes on businesses and infrastructure offering heating sources to Ukrainian people.
“The targets of Russian missiles can and you will be enterprises and infrastructure offering people who have heat and electricity,” Zelensky said. “We already export electricity to your neighbors, which helps replace dirty Russian energy resources, and we are able to easily increase exports to at the very least two . 5 gigawatts, and later a lot more… But also for this, the Russian military must withdraw from the territory of the Zaporizhia NPP. This fundamental European interest now, at the moment before winter.”
Russia began building troops along Ukraine’s northern and western borders in late January, plus they began attacking Ukraine on February 24, 2022. Since that time, there were heavy casualties on both sides. Which includes Ukrainian civilians, foreign fighters, Ukrainian military and much more than 52,600 Russians.
