Volodymyr Zelensky, the Ukrainian president, said late Sunday that the coming week could be difficult, as last week, when Russian missile strikes wrecked extensive damage to the country's electricity grid as a result of the strikes.
The Ukrainian army has been preparing for Russian attacks from the beginning of the year, and Zelensky has expressed his gratitude to the authorities for solving the electricity problem during his video address at night.
"We understand that terrorists are planning new attacks. We know that for sure," said Zelenski. "And as long as they have missiles, they will not calm down, unfortunately." In recent weeks, Russian airstrikes have repeatedly struck key infrastructure targets in Ukraine, causing problems for important facilities as the winter season approaches.
Officials from the Russian government have denied that such attacks are targeted at civilians. Russia wants to cause huge fear among the Ukrainians, but for now, they are offering good resistance.
Volodymyr Zelensky: '(The Russians) everywhere have the same goal'
Volodymyr Zelensky also spoke about the Russian Army and the problems they caused in Kherson.
This caused the anger of the Ukrainian president, who is in a difficult moment. Of course, this happened a month ago, but Ukrainians are still furious about everything that is happening, especially at Europe, which still does not want to get directly involved in the story between the two warring parties.
This story will last for a long time, and we hope for the best solution.
"Before leaving Kherson, the occupiers destroyed all critical infrastructure: communications, water, heating, electricity supply," Zelenskiy said in a video message.
'(The Russians) everywhere have the same goal: to humiliate the people as much as they can. But we will return everything, believe me,' he said. Zelenskiy said that Ukrainian soldiers have taken control of more than 60 settlements in the Kherson region. "The police started implementing measures to stabilize the situation," he said.
