However, Klitschko believes that this number is not enough for the city’s 3.5 million people. Even if 500 or 5000 heating points are made, they will also fall short.
Russia said – the attack was militarily legitimate
Russia has justified the damage to power stations in Ukraine. According to a Reuters report, Russia believes that its attacks on critical infrastructure in Ukraine are militarily legitimate.
