Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky told the UN Security Council that he had extended an invitation to a UN mission of experts to visit Ukraine and study the country’s critical infrastructure.
Zelensky said via video on Wednesday: “I confirm my call on behalf of Ukraine for a mission of experts from the United Nations to examine Ukraine’s critical infrastructure. Facilities must be examined and evaluated to document what has been done against the infrastructure that provides the lives of tens of millions of people.”
The United Nations Security Council is currently holding an emergency session at Ukraine’s request.
As earlier, an air alert was declared throughout Ukraine. Local media reported explosions in Kyiv, and the mayor of the Ukrainian capital, Vitaliy Klitschko, confirmed infrastructure damage.
According to local media, in the neighborhoods on the left bank of the city, there were interruptions in the water and electricity supplies.
The Russian armed forces also launched attacks on Ukrainian infrastructure on October 10, two days after the terrorist attack on the Crimean bridge, which was behind the Ukrainian intelligence services.
According to Russian authorities, the strikes are being carried out on energy facilities, defense industry, military command and communications across the country, from Kharkov and Kiev to Lvov and Ivano-Frankivsk.
