Russian dictator Vladimir Putin commented on the terrorist attacks by his soldiers on energy facilities in Ukraine during a meeting with the self-proclaimed president of Belarus, Alexander Lukashenko.

According to him, the strikes on energy facilities are supposedly related to "addressing one of the tasks that the Russian Federation had set for itself."

"This is demilitarization. First and foremost, we are proceeding from the fact that in this way we influence Ukraine's defense-industrial complex, directly," he added.

At the same time, the Russian dictator explained that the shelling "was a response" to Ukrainian strikes on "Russian energy facilities."

"Even from humanitarian considerations, we did not strike in winter. I mean, we did not want to leave social institutions, hospitals, and so on without energy supply," fantasized the Kremlin leader.

Shelling of Ukraine on April 11

Today, April 11, Russian occupiers launched another massive attack on Ukraine. They used kamikaze drones and rockets for this purpose.

The main targets of the enemy were energy infrastructure facilities. In particular, as a result of the strike, the Trypillia Thermal Power Plant located in the Kyiv region was destroyed.

Several objects were also damaged in the Kharkiv region. As a result, power outage schedules were introduced in Kharkiv and other populated areas.

The Russian Ministry of Defense has already stated that such shelling was in response to Ukraine's strikes on Russian oil refineries.
