At least six civilians were killed in Russian shelling of the city of Kurakhove, Donetsk region. Such a statement made the President of Ukraine.
“The Donetsk region - today the Russian army carried out a very brutal, absolutely deliberate strike at Kurakhove. Precisely at civilians. At ordinary people. At the market, elevator, gas station, bus station, residential building. The list of the dead so far includes ten people, there are many wounded. My condolences to relatives and friends... Eternal memory to all victims of Russian terror!
I’ve held a meeting of the Staff today. Commanders’ reports, analysis of the situation in specific directions.
First of all, regarding the Donetsk region, Bakhmut districts and other hottest spots. A very fierce confrontation is ongoing there, every meter counts. I thank all our guys who destroy the enemy right there - every day, every night, every hour. Of course, due attention was paid to the Luhansk region and Kharkiv region at the Staff’s meeting, there were reports on the situation in general and on the borders.
Energy sector is a permanent item on our agenda - both at the Staff and government levels. I’ve also held a meeting on the stabilization of the energy system and the protection of our power plants.
We are constantly increasing the generation and supply of electricity - we are adding more volume almost every day. But we should not forget - and everyone should not forget - that it is now impossible to restore 100% of the energy system as it was before the beginning of the Russian energy terror. We need time. That is why shutdown schedules remain in most cities and districts”, - said Volodymyr Zelensky.
