Ukraine President Volodymyr Zelenskyy said Russia targeted Ukraine’s energy infrastructure during Monday’s strikes across the country, including by Iran-made drones.

“This morning is difficult. We are dealing with terrorists. Dozens of missiles and Iranian Shaheds. They have two targets. Energy facilities throughout the country,” Zelenskyy said in a video address on social media, adding that “the second target is people.”

“They want panic and chaos, they want to destroy our energy system,” Zelenskyy said.

Strikes were reported in multiple cities across Ukraine, including rare attacks on the capital Kyiv and the western Lviv region.

Zelenskyy said that attacks also took place in Dnipro, Vinnytsia and Ivano-Frankivsk in central Ukraine, Zaporizhzhia in the south and Kharkiv and Sumy regions in the east, among others.

“There may be temporary power outages now, but there will never be an interruption in our confidence – our confidence in victory,” Zelenskyy added.

Earlier in the day, Zelenskyy accused Russia of trying to wipe his country “off the face of the earth.”

“They are trying to destroy us and wipe us off the face of the earth...destroy our people who are sleeping at home in [the city of] Zaporizhzhia. Kill people who go to work in Dnipro and Kyiv,” Zelenskyy said on the Telegram messaging app.

“The air raid sirens do not subside throughout Ukraine. There are missiles hitting. Unfortunately, there are dead and wounded.”
