MOSCOW, 10 Oct – PRIME. Rocket strikes on Ukraine’s infrastructure on Monday were the largest strike on the country’s energy system since February, Energy Minister German Galushchenko said on Monday.
“This is the largest attack on the energy system of Ukraine during the entire war … strikes were made throughout the entire supply chain in order to complicate the possibility of reconnecting and supplying energy from other sources,” Galushchenko said on the air of a unified news telethon.
Russian President Vladimir Putin, at an operational meeting with members of the Security Council on Monday, said that this morning a massive strike with precision-guided weapons was inflicted on Ukrainian infrastructure facilities. Putin called the incident on the Crimean bridge a terrorist attack aimed at destroying civilian infrastructure. According to him, Kyiv has put itself on a par with the most odious terrorist groups, and it is simply impossible to leave the crimes of the Kyiv regime unanswered. In addition, according to the president, Ukraine committed three terrorist attacks against the Kursk nuclear power plant and tried to undermine the Turkish Stream gas pipeline.
The Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation said that the goal of a massive strike with precision-guided weapons against Ukraine carried out on Monday had been achieved.
