Ukrainian President Volodmyr Zelensky has said on Tuesday that there is now “no space left for negotiations” with Vladimir Putin.
Russia has been targeting Ukraine’s “critical infrastructure” since 10 October which has led to 30% of the country’s power stations left destroyed which has caused “massive blackouts.”
The northern Ukrainian city of Zhytomyr has been left without water and electricity after Russian air strikes.

Zelensky said, “In just 12 hours from 9pm Sunday, 37 Iranian ‘Shaheds’ and several cruise missiles were destroyed.
“The world can and must stop this terror. When we talk about Ukraine’s need for air and missile defence, we are talking about real lives that are being taken by terrorists.”
Valentyn Reznichenko, the head of Dnipro, said two missiles hit an energy facility and parts of the region are without electricity.
Reznichenko said, “There is a fire and serious destruction. Some districts of Dnipro, Synelnikovo and Vasylkivka remain without electricity.
“There are water interruptions on the left bank of the Dnipro city. All services will start working as soon as the danger of new attacks passes.
“Please save electricity wherever possible. It is very important.”
