In freezing cold, waves of Russian missiles hit Ukraine

Kyiv: In freezing weather, Russia launched dozens of missile and drones over Ukraine’s energy systems on Friday, throwing millions of civilians into the cold and sinks into its murderous campaign to beat – and freeze – the populace into submission.
In the central city of Kremenchuk, Mayor Vitalii Maletsky said more than 2,00,000 customers were out of heat as temperatures hovered around 14 degrees Fahrenheit, and he implored people to “close all windows and to take all possible measures to conserve heat”. In Kyiv, the capital and largest city, even after hours of emergency repairs, two-thirds of residents had no heat or water, and 60 percent had no electricity, Mayor Vitaliy said. Klitschko in the evening.
In the ninth wave of large-scale attacks on Ukraine’s civilian infrastructure this fall, and the second this week, explosions rocked towns and villages across a country where millions have already been bombed or expelled from their homes.
Frustrated and angry, Ukrainians living far from the front lines but in increasingly harsh conditions have expressed a desire for relief โ€“ and revenge.
“Look how we live,” said Gennady Omelyan, a taxi driver in Kyiv. “We are fed up! We have to fight back against Russia. Give us weapons. We have enough soldiers, give us weapons.
The barrage came as Ukraine’s military and political leaders warned in a series of interviews and press conferences that Russia was preparing for a new ground offensive this winter and would likely make another attempt to seize Kyiv. They did not cite specific intelligence, but their statements amounted to a coordinated reaction against discussions by Moscow โ€“ and some officials from countries supporting Ukraine โ€“ about possible peace talks.
President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelensky and his top advisers insist that Russia, which invaded without provocation in late February, is not serious about peace, and that any pause in the war would only give the Kremlin time to cement its grip on the territory it has seized and to rebuild its forces for a new assault on Ukraine. Officials in Kyiv fear that their Western donors, weary of high energy prices and the cost of supplying Ukraine, are too eager to agree to a ceasefire.
Ukrainian Defense Minister Oleksii Reznikov told The Guardian newspaper that a new Russian offensive could take place as early as February.
