For the Kremlin, the suffering of civilians is the “consequence” of kyiv’s refusal to negotiate
The suffering of civilians in Ukraine, faced with power cuts in the middle of winter after Russian strikes on energy infrastructure, is the “consequence” of kyiv’s refusal to negotiate with Moscow, the Kremlin said.
“This is the consequence of the Ukrainian side’s lack of will to resolve the issue, to start negotiations, its refusal to seek common ground,” Kremlin spokesman Dmitry told reporters. Peskov, asked about the power cuts suffered by millions of Ukrainians.
“The (Russian) special military operation continues, its continuation does not depend on weather conditions,” he added, as snow began to fall in Ukraine.
Dmitri Peskov stressed that the heavy Russian strikes targeting Ukraine this week were targeting “infrastructure sites that are directly or indirectly linked to the Ukrainian armed forces”.
