Emergency blackouts have been introduced across the country because of the outbreak, he said. in multiple regions.
Reuters reported that the United States is also finalizing plans to supply Ukraine with advanced Patriot air defense batteries that will provide additional protection against Russian cruise and tactical ballistic missiles.

Ukrainian Foreign Minister Dmytro Kuleva has used the recent attacks to urge allies to step up their arms supplies. “For every Russian missile or drone aimed at Ukraine and Ukrainians, we must deliver howitzers to Ukraine, tanks to Ukraine, and armored vehicles to Ukraine,” he said on social media. “This will effectively end Russian terrorism against Ukraine and restore peace and security to Europe and beyond.”
