Ukraine was assured of support.
The heads of diplomacy of the European Union and the United States reacted to another massive shelling of Ukraine by the Russian occupiers.
As US Secretary of State Anthony Blinken noted, today the Russian Federation once again forced millions of Ukrainians to go into hiding, delivering a massive blow.
“The ongoing attacks on infrastructure are designed to keep the civilian population of Ukraine in the cold and in the dark. This terrible tactic will not break the resolve of Ukraine and its partners,” Blinken wrote.
EU High Representative for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy Josep Borrell called the attacks “cruel and inhumane” and assured Ukraine of support.
“We strongly condemn Russia’s new criminal attacks on civilians and critical infrastructure in Ukraine: mass blackouts, also in Moldova. Depriving millions of electricity, water and heating in winter is cruel and inhumane. EU support for Ukraine and Moldova continues,” he wrote.
