Ukraine war: Zelensky denounces Russian ‘terror’ in UN address
Ukraine’s president Zelenksy has accused Russia of “crimes against humanity.”
He said that the Russian “formula of terror” had forced “millions of people to stay without energy supplies, without heating, without water” in sub-zero cold.
The strikes have killed at least seven people, and nuclear power plants went off-line, Ukraine said.
The three plants were disconnected from the grid and the Zaporizhzhia plant was forced again to rely on diesel generators to power its cooling systems and key safety equipment.
Neighbouring Moldova experienced blackouts on Wednesday but was not directly hit.
Moscow has stepped up its strikes on Ukraine’s energy infrastructure in recent weeks as winter sets in.
