British Ministry of Defense: New Russian Attacks on Ukrainian Power Grid?

The British Ministry of Defense comments on new possible attacks by Russia in its daily update.

According to the statement, London believes new Russian attacks on Ukraine’s power grid are likely in the coming winter. Top Russian leaders have apparently been emphasizing efforts to increase production of air-launched cruise missiles for several months, according to the British Ministry of Defense statement.

Furthermore, he said, there is evidence that Russia has been using fewer of these projectiles since April. It also appears likely, therefore, that Russia can build up a significant stockpile of cruise missiles, it said. “There is a realistic possibility that Russia will again direct these weapons against Ukrainian infrastructure targets during the winter,” London said.

Already in the past of the Russian war of aggression against Ukraine, Moscow had massively attacked Ukraine’s energy infrastructure such as thermal power plants.
