President Vladimir Putin on October 10 confirmed that Russia had a large-scale att.ack on essential Ukrainian infrastructures such as energy facilities, power stations, military command centers, and telecommunications infrastructure in Ukraine. The Russian Defense Ministry said the raid on a series of Ukrainian cities was carried out with high-precision long-range wea.pons. Furthermore, the agency confirmed that the att.ack hit all the targets.

A day later, Russia continued to att.ack critical infrastructure targets across Ukraine. This att.ack could be considered the most significant Russian att.ack since the beginning of the military campaign. According to Ukrainian authorities, more than 30% of the country’s energy infrastructure was damaged. Kiev believes that Russia’s new ambush tactic is to do as much damage as possible to Ukraine, making the cold winter even more challenging for Ukraine.

President Vladimir Putin said on October 14 that Russia does not need to carry out large-scale ra.ids on Ukraine now because Moscow has other plans. However, the owner of the Kremlin also affirmed that Russia does not want to des.troy Ukraine.
