Russia has launched nearly 100 missiles in the past 36 hours, attacking Ukraine’s water and energy supplies, U.S. State Department Spokesperson Ned Price wrote on Twitter on Nov. 1.

“With temperatures dropping, these attacks are particularly heinous,” Price tweeted.

He added that the United States remains committed to the victory of a sovereign and independent Ukraine.

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.
