The Russian occupiers are now trying to cause as much destruction as possible to Ukraine's energy sector with their combined air strikes on the territory of Ukraine, states Volodymyr Zelenskyy.

"Russian terrorists are now aimed at such vile attacks - at the energy exsanguination of Ukraine," the Head of State said.

He noted that the Ukrainian side had already given "all the necessary signals" to the partner countries and all specific requests for assistance in strengthening our air defense.

"Everyone who has the necessary air defense systems, everyone who has the necessary missiles. America, Europe, our other partners - everyone knows what we need, everyone knows how important it is to help us defend ourselves against these attacks right now, at this time," Zelenskyy said.

The President also expressed his gratitude to those heads of state and government whose "leadership is being demonstrated right now, who are truly fulfilling our agreements and keeping their word."

Russian massive attacks on Ukraine

Russian terrorists have recently intensified their attacks against Ukraine. The enemy is actively using drones and missiles of various types. For example, on the night of March 22 alone, the Russians attacked Ukraine with 151 air weapons. At the same time, the enemy shelled energy facilities, which resulted in emergency blackouts in a number of cities.

In particular, on March 29, the enemy launched 60 kamikaze drones and 39 missiles, which were also aimed at Ukraine's energy sector. Terrorists attacked three thermal power plants, causing serious damage to equipment.

Today, Ukrenergo has instructed operators to apply blackout schedules in several regions of Ukraine.

According to Deputy Energy Minister Svitlana Hrynchuk, there is currently no talk of blackouts in Ukraine, but the future situation depends on the enemy's plans.
