MADRID, Dec. 29 (.) –
The Foreign Minister of Ukraine, Dimitro Kuleba, has branded this Thursday as “senseless barbarism” the latest attacks with missiles and drones by Russia and has stressed that “pretending to be neutral is tantamount to siding” with Moscow in the framework of the invasion, unleashed on February 24 by order of Russian President Vladimir Putin.
“Senseless barbarism. These are the only words that come to mind when seeing Russia launch another wave of missile attacks against peaceful Ukrainian cities before the New Year,” Kuleba said on his Twitter account. “There can be no neutralizing in the face of these mass war crimes,” she has stated.
Oleksi Gromov, ‘number two’ of the Operational Department of the General Staff of the Ukrainian Armed Forces, has stated that the Russian forces have fired 69 missiles at Ukrainian territory on Thursday, 54 of which have been destroyed by air defense systems, according to the Ukrainian news agency Ukrinform.
“The enemy has launched air and sea cruise missiles, as well as S-300 and S-400 anti-aircraft guided missiles against energy and critical infrastructure facilities in the eastern, central, western and southern regions,” it said.
The mayor of kyiv, Vitali Klitschko, has confirmed that at least three people, including a fourteen-year-old girl, have been injured in the capital as a result of these attacks. “Everyone is hospitalized,” he pointed out in a brief message on his Telegram account.
