Russia won’t stop its strikes on Ukrainian infrastructure until it runs out of missiles, President Volodymyr Zelenskiy says, as he warns of new attacks.
Zelenskiy warns of another brutal week
President Volodymyr Zelenskiy has warned Ukrainians to expect another brutal week of cold and darkness ahead, predicting more Russian attacks on infrastructure that would not cease until Moscow ran out of missiles.
Russia has been carrying out massive missile bombardments on Ukraine’s energy infrastructure roughly weekly since early October, with each barrage having greater impact than the last as damage accumulates and a frigid winter sets in.
In an overnight video address, Zelenskiy said he expected new attacks this week that could be as bad as last week’s – the worst yet that left millions of people with no heat, water or power.
“We understand that the terrorists are planning new strikes. We know this for a fact,” Zelenskiy said. “And as long as they have missiles, they, unfortunately, will not calm down.”
