“GGradually, war is returning to Russia’s territory, to its symbolic centers and military bases. And this is an inevitable, natural and absolutely fair process,” said the Ukrainian leader, visiting the city of Ivano-Frankivsk.
This morning, Russia announced that it had repelled two attacks by Ukrainian ‘drones’ overnight, one on the Crimean peninsula, annexed to Ukraine in 2014, and another on Moscow.
In the Russian capital, whose international airport was temporarily closed, two office towers in the city’s main business district were damaged.
The Russian Ministry of Defense reported that the attack on Moscow involved three ‘drones’, one of which was shot down and the other two neutralized electronically.
“Ukraine is getting stronger,” Zelensky added of this attack, adding that Ukraine should prepare for further attacks against its energy infrastructure next winter.
“It is obvious that this autumn and winter the enemy will try to repeat the terrorist attacks against the Ukrainian energy industry”, explained the Ukrainian President.
“We have to be prepared for this, both at the state level and in each community,” added Zelensky, in statements published on the presidential account of the social network Telegram.
The military offensive launched on February 24, 2022 by Russia in Ukraine caused, according to the latest UN data, the worst refugee crisis in Europe since the Second World War (1939-1945).
The Russian invasion — justified by the Russian President, Vladimir Putin, with the need to “denazify” and demilitarize Ukraine for Russia’s security – was condemned by the international community in general, which has responded by sending arms to Ukraine and imposing Russia from political and economic sanctions.
