Russia is continuing with the daily barrage of wide spread air strikes across Ukraine and Kyiv has been warned that they “will be sent back to the 18th century.”
Critical infrastructure across Ukraine is under constant attack which is causing major blackouts across large parts of the country and many are without water and heating as the mercury continues to plummet.
Vladimir Putin’s army is continuing to be hit with setbacks and he is losing large numbers of reservists daily and has resorted to targeting power infrastructure in Ukraine.
On Thursday the Russian Defence Ministry spokesman Igor Konashenkov acknowledged that they are targeting energy infrastructure which he says are linked to Kyiv’s military command.

Russian UN Ambassador Vassily Nebenzia said: “We are conducting strikes against infrastructure in response to the unbridled flow of weapons to Ukraine and the reckless appeals of Kyiv to defeat Russia.”
Putin’s ally and deputy speaker of the Duma, Pyotr Tolstoy, admitted that Russia will “destroy” Ukraine’s infrastructure.
Tolstoy told French broadcaster BFM, “The infrastructure of Ukraine will be destroyed, and Ukraine will be sent back to the 18th century.”
He said that Ukraine’s Western allies “will pay the price” and warned that the West should now “prepare itself for war that will last years.”
Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov blamed the Kyiv government for the suffering of their civilians.
Peskov said, “Ukraine’s leadership has every opportunity to bring the situation back to normal, has every opportunity to resolve the situation in such a way as to meet the demands of the Russian side and, accordingly, end all possible suffering of the civilian population.”
