The President of Ukraine, Volodymyr Zelensky, said today that the new strategy of destroying Ukrainian infrastructure, which Russia is implementing, will not weaken their determination to liberate the territory.

In an interview with the Financial Times, Zelensky opposed Western countries’ fears of an escalation of the conflict and insisted that there will be no permanent solution to the war unless Russia withdraws from all the territories it has occupied, the Guardian reported.

– We must return all the territories, because I believe that the battlefield is the road when there is no diplomacy. If you cannot return your country completely, the war is simply frozen – said the Ukrainian leader.

Yesterday, Russia launched 70 missiles at infrastructure targets across Ukraine, leaving about 80 percent of the country without electricity and water.

Commenting on the attacks, Zelenski said that it was an incident that had not happened in the past “maybe 80, 90 years, if there was a country on the European continent where there was no electricity”.

Zelensky again appealed to Ukraine’s western partners to provide more air defense equipment to protect critical infrastructure, as well as supplies of diesel for emergency generators and extra gas to make up for power shortages.

He also assessed that attacks targeting civilian infrastructure show that Moscow has no intention of negotiating an end to the war.
