“And now we are waiting for certain decisions from our partners, by the way,” he said without providing any details.

Zelenskyy added that Ukrainian regions should take care of protecting critical facilities and carry out necessary reconstruction work “as soon as possible.”

Kyiv has warned that Moscow is restarting a campaign of aerial attacks on Ukrainian energy infrastructure that last year left millions without heating and water for long periods.

German Foreign Minister Annalena Baerbock this week called for the creation of a strategy to insulate Ukraine from the fallout of a campaign of Russian strikes on its energy grid.
