Ukraine President Volodymyr Zelenskyy said Russia targeted Ukraine’s energy infrastructure during Monday’s strikes across the country, including by Iran-made drones, ONA reports citing AFP.
“This morning is difficult. We are dealing with terrorists. Dozens of missiles and Iranian Shaheds. They have two targets. Energy facilities throughout the country,” Zelenskyy said in a video address on social media, adding that “the second target is people.”
“They want panic and chaos, they want to destroy our energy system,” Zelenskyy said.
Zelenskyy said that attacks also took place in Dnipro, Vinnytsia and Ivano-Frankivsk in central Ukraine, Zaporizhzhia in the south, and Kharkiv and Sumy regions in the east, among others.
“There may be temporary power outages now, but there will never be an interruption in our confidence – our confidence in victory,” Zelenskyy added.
