Russia-Ukraine War: A Russian lawmaker has issued a dire warning to Ukraine, threatening that Russian President Vladimir Putin will push the “enemy country” back into the 18th century by stepping up attacks on Ukraine’s energy facilities.
According to a Daily Mail report, Pyotr Tolstoy, a member of Russia’s State Duma, has warned that there will be no respite from attacks on Ukrainian power plants before winter. According to the report, a member of President Vladimir Putin’s United Russia party said Ukraine’s infrastructure would be destroyed and the country would be pushed back into the 18th century.
Russia warns US, EU and UK against Ukraine
A Russian member of parliament has warned on French TV channel BFM that Ukraine’s allies, the United States, the European Union and Britain, will have to pay a heavy price for their help. He pointed out that officials in Moscow made baseless claims that vital infrastructure in the Ukrainian capital had been damaged by foreign air defense missiles.
The Russian Defense Ministry said no attacks were carried out against targets in the city of Kyiv.
Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov said Ukraine could “end the pain” by stepping back “to meet the needs of the Russian side”. According to the Daily Mail report, Dmitry Peskov said that Ukraine has every chance to normalize the situation. At the same time, Moscow has repeatedly rejected Ukraine’s request to leave the country before peace talks can begin.
Since the beginning of last month, several missiles have been fired by Russian troops. Iranian-made drones were sent to energy targets across Ukraine to destroy its power grid when the temperature fell below zero. The war has ended its nine months and now it appears that Russia is targeting the country’s infrastructure rather than Ukrainian soldiers or military construction, in order to force Kyiv to surrender.
