MOSCOW, 18 Oct — PRIME. Since October 10, 30% of power plants in Ukraine have been destroyed and this has led to massive power outages in the country, President Volodymyr Zelensky said.
“Since October 10, 30% of Ukrainian power plants have been destroyed, which led to massive power outages throughout the country. There is no place for negotiations (with the Russian Federation – ed.) … left,” he wrote on Twitter.
The Russian Armed Forces began to strike at Ukrainian infrastructure on October 10, two days after the terrorist attack on the Crimean bridge, behind which, according to the Russian authorities, the Ukrainian special services are. As President of the Russian Federation Vladimir Putin stated, with the explosion on the bridge Kyiv put itself on a par with the most odious terrorist groups, and “it is simply impossible to leave crimes of this kind unanswered.” Attacks are being made on energy, defense, military command and communications facilities across the country, from Kharkiv and Kyiv to Lvov and Ivano-Frankivsk, causing large-scale power outages.
