The Russian Federation is preparing to shell Ukraine's energy facilities in the winter. However, the attacks are not likely to be as large-scale as last year. This opinion was expressed by Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky in an interview with foreign media, Le Monde reports.
The president believes that Ukraine is better prepared for possible Russian attacks than last year. In his opinion, the winter period will be difficult for Ukrainians, as the Russian Armed Forces will not use fewer weapons.
"I think we are better prepared for winter than before. But I don't think Russia will use fewer weapons. Winter will be hard... From the point of view of air defense, we are in a better position than last winter," Volodymyr Zelensky noted.
The Head of State emphasized that the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation were stockpiling missiles and preparing to launch massive strikes on the energy system of Ukraine.
"I think they are stockpiling (missiles), but they don't have much more missiles than before. Otherwise, they would have already started bombing," Zelensky said.
