Russian attacks on power supply: Zelensky calls for “very tough reaction” from UN Security Council

by archyde

Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy has announced the establishment of more than 4,000 warming rooms for the people of the attacked country who are plagued by cold and darkness. “All basic services are provided there,” he said in his evening video address on Tuesday. “This includes electricity, mobile communication and the Internet, heat, water, first aid. Completely free of charge and around the clock.”

Selenskyj called the facilities in administration buildings or schools “stability points”. The official name on a government website also translates to “points of steadfastness.” “I am sure that if we help each other, we will get through this winter together,” he said.

“Should there be another massive Russian attack and the power supply cannot be restored within a few hours, the work of the ‘stability points’ will be activated,” said Zelenskyy. The local authorities should provide information “where to find support in the event of a prolonged power outage”. Companies are also asked to provide rooms or help.

As a result of the Russian attacks on the electricity grid, Ukraine has had to contend with power outages, but also with problems with heating, water and gas supplies.
