Zelensky Warns of Further Russian Attacks on Energy Infrastructure as Ukrainians Face Harsh Winter

HeadlineNov 28, 2022

Ukrainians are bracing for more frigid conditions as President Volodymyr Zelensky warned further Russian missile strikes are coming and utility companies struggle to restore power to damaged infrastructure. The national energy company asked residents to keep conserving electricity so as not to overwhelm the power grid. Ukrainian nuclear authorities said Russian forces may be preparing to leave the occupied Zaporizhzhia nuclear plant, though Russia has denied this claim.

Over the weekend, Ukrainians commemorated the Holodomor, the famine of 1932 to 1933, which was brought on by Soviet leader Joseph Stalin’s policies and killed at least 4 million people, by many estimates. German lawmakers are planning to pass a resolution this week declaring the Holodomor a genocide.
