Ukraine President Volodymyr Zelenskyy declared on Tuesday that there was "no room left for dialogue" with Vladimir Putin over the ongoing conflict.
Kyiv: Ukraine President Volodymyr Zelenskyy declared on Tuesday that there was “no room left for dialogue” with Vladimir Putin over the ongoing conflict, which recently escalated after the latter ordered a partial mobilisation of soldiers approximately a month ago.
Zelenskyy stated on Twitter that there was “no room left for dialogue with (President Vladimir) Putin’s regime.”
He added that within a week, continuous strikes by Russian forces on Ukraine’s energy infrastructure had destroyed a third of the nation’s power plants, resulting in nationwide blackouts. Following another series of strikes on Tuesday, the war-torn country’s capital, Kyiv, among several regions, was experiencing huge power cuts.
Zelenskyy stated that “since October 10, 30% of Ukraine’s power stations have been badly damaged by the Russian attack, resulting in massive blackouts throughout the nation.”
Energy provider DTEK in Kyiv warned of “interruptions” in the water and electricity supplies to the residents of the capital’s left bank. The engineers are looking into the situation and taking all necessary steps to restore power to the city’s residents, the company wrote on Facebook.
Residents have been asked to conserve electricity “as much as possible” and avoid using high-energy-consumption appliances due to a lack of electricity supply.
“Interruptions” in the water supply were reported on the left bank of Dnipro city and the neighbouring city of Pavlograd.
In the latest attack on Kyiv, Russian drones damaged a residential building that killed five. The Ukraine called it an attack of desperation. Military observers believe that it is Moscow’s response to battlefield losses.
