      Much of the Ukrainian capital of Kiev is without electricity or water, after the latest round of major Russian airstrikes on Monday. The Russian military announced ‘successful’ strikes on multiple of the country’s vital infrastructure facilities.

      “The Russian Armed Forces continued to launch strikes with high-precision long-range air and sea-based weapons against Ukrainian military and energy facilities,” the Defense Ministry said. “The goals of the strikes were successful. All assigned objects were hit.” Meanwhile, Ukrainian Prime Minister Denys Shmyhal confirmed direct hits on 18 sites – most of which were connected to the nation’s energy supply. These ramped up attacks have created a growing sense of panic with temperatures plunging and winter approaching.

      “Missiles and drones hit 10 regions, where 18 sites were damaged, most of them energy-related,” Shmyhal stated on Telegram. “Hundreds of settlements in seven regions of Ukraine were cut off.” Facilities in Cherkasy and Kirovohrad also came under attack. Ukraine’s military said it intercepted projectiles over the Lviv region, which spared this western part of the country from damage.

      After another month of this, and with the ground frozen, the SMO should move into high gear. Being cold and in the dark is demoralizing.

      The official post from the Prime Minister said

      During the morning Russian attack, ten regions of Ukraine were hit, 18 facilities were damaged, mostly related to energy sector.

      “Russian terrorists have once again massively attacked Ukraine. Their target is civilian critical infrastructure, not military facilities. Missiles and drones hit 10 regions, damaging 18 facilities, most of which are energy facilities. Hundreds of settlements in seven regions of Ukraine were blacked out,” Prime Minister of Ukraine Denys Shmyhal posted on Telegram.

      He emphasized that the consequences of the attack could have been worse, but 44 missiles of more than 50 fired at the Ukrainian territory were shot down thanks to the professional work of the air defense units.

      It’s pretty impressive that the six or so missiles that got through hit 18 facilities.

        I’m surprised that Ukraine shout down as many missiles as the did. Must not have been the hypersonic ones.

      Russian terrorists again massively attacked Ukraine. Their target is not military facilities, but civilian critical infrastructure. Missiles and drones hit 10 regions, where 18 objects were damaged, most of which are energy-related. Hundreds of settlements in seven regions of Ukraine were cut off. The consequences could have been much worse. But thanks to the heroic and professional work of the Air Defense Forces, 44 of the more than 50 missiles fired at our territory were shot down. Thank you to the fighters who protect our skies. I also thank the energy workers who are currently eliminating the consequences of the Russian attacks. Repair crews are working at full capacity. Local emergency shutdowns continue in Kyiv region, Zaporizhzhia, Dnipropetrovsk region, and Kharkiv region. Today, as in previous weeks, it is important that all Ukrainians consciously consume energy and reduce the load on the network. Let’s be united and united in energy saving! Ukraine will win!

        That sounds about as effective a campaign as

        Even so, Russia is using precision missiles to take out energy and military infrastructure, minimizing civilian casualties.

          The reports I’ve seen are of a dozen or so wounded in the missile strikes. There are daily reports of civilian casualties still occurring in Donbass (now Russia) and the Belgorod region (Russia north of Kharkov) and other areas from Ukrainian shelling, mostly from NATO weapons.
