G7 foreign ministers will gather in Germany on Nov. 3 to discuss how to better align policies and stay united in the face of intensifying Russian attacks onUkraine, the Reuters news agency has reported.
“This G7 ministerial is, for us, coming at an important time,” a senior U.S. State Department official said, noting that the group “has been a vital coordinating mechanism” for policy approaches on the most pressing issues.
EU Energy Commissioner Kadri Simson said on Nov. 1 during a visit to Kyiv that the European Union, together with partners, was exploring ways to increase help for Ukraine’s energy sector.
Russia launched another massive missile attack on Ukraine early on Oct. 31.
Missile attacks were reported in the cities of Kharkiv and Zaporizhzhya, as well as in Cherkasy, Kyiv, and Kirovohrad oblasts.
In many areas, Ukrainian air defense forces were heard shooting down Russian missiles.
The Russian invaders’ strikes were aimed at hitting energy infrastructure. Part of the cities of Kyiv, Kharkiv and Zaporizhzhya were left without power.
Russia also hit energy infrastructure facilities in Kyiv Oblast, resulting in some settlements being left without water supplies. Local authorities also warned residents to prepare for long blackouts.
