Zelenskyy issues a warning on more attacks from Russia

Volodymyr Zelenskyy, Ukraine’s president, has issued a warning that Russia will launch additional missile attacks on his country.

Zelenskyy also urged Ukraine’s defense forces and citizens to be prepared for a week of power grid strain.
The warning was issued on Sunday as snow fell in Kyiv, temperatures neared freezing, and the fog was expected to last overnight.

Workers were close to restoring heat, water, and power, according to city officials, but some blackouts had been imposed due to high consumption.

Waves of Russian air raids were disrupting the lives of millions in and around Kyiv.

We are aware that the terrorists are planning additional attacks. In his nightly video address, Zelenskyy stated, “And as long as they have missiles, they, unfortunately, will not calm down. We understand that the terrorists are planning new strikes. We know this for a fact”

According to Zelenskyy, the following week could be just as difficult as the one before it, when attacks on electricity infrastructure caused the most severe power outages for Ukrainians since Russian troops invaded in February.

Our armed forces are preparing. He stated, “The entire nation is getting ready.”All of the scenarios have been worked out, including with our partners.

Moscow did not immediately respond to Zelenskyy’s claims.
Since the 24th of February, when Russia invaded Ukraine, Moscow has stated that it does not target civilians.

By complying with Russia’s demands, Kyiv could “end the suffering” of its population, the Kremlin stated on Thursday.

In September, Russia annexed portions of Ukraine’s east and south, and President Vladimir Putin has stated that Moscow’s territorial demands cannot be changed.

Zelenskyy stated that he would not negotiate with Moscow following the annexation and emphasized that Ukraine’s territorial integrity could not be negotiated.

The damage was described as “colossal” by Grid operator Ukrenergo: “Cold weather is gradually boosting energy needs as workers race to repair wrecked power facilities,” according to Ukrenergo.

It stated that electricity producers must impose blackouts to conserve energy because they are still unable to resume full power supply following Russia’s missile attacks on Wednesday.

Ukrenergo stated on Telegram, “The consumption restriction regime is still in place due to a capacity deficit, which currently stands at around 20%.”

Despite the fact that most regions were subject to scheduled blackouts in order to assist in restoring the grid, Zelenskyy stated on Sunday that utility and emergency teams were working around the clock to provide power and that the situation was “under control.”

Yaroslav Yanushevych, regional governor of Kherson, stated that 17 percent of customers now have power. In the coming days, other districts will be connected.

Some elderly people from the southern city were evacuated by volunteers and the Ukrainian government during the power outages.

Volunteer Viktor Mironov stated, “We need to get as many people out as possible.”There is no electricity, water, or food.

Help is needed. Hospitals need help, they need medicine. We need to do as much as we can so our people can have a warm place to stay and be provided with all the necessities.”

Customers have also been urged to conserve power by Zelenskyy and utility officials on a regular basis.

On Saturday evening, YASNO’s chief operating officer, Sergey Kovalenko, stated that the city’s situation had improved but remained “quite difficult.”

Zelenskyy criticized Vitali Klitschko, the mayor of Kyiv, claiming that he had not done enough to assist the city’s beleaguered residents. In response to Zelenskyy, Klitschko, a former professional boxer, stated that the criticism was inappropriate given Russia’s military campaign.

Klitschko stated, “That is senseless.”
