The Russian army will carry on targeting critical infrastructure in Ukraine with missiles, as their key objective is to destroy it completely, Yuriy Ihnat, spokesperson for Ukraine’s Air Force Command, said at a briefing on Nov. 7.
"The main goal is the energy sector," he stated.
"They are using the range of weapons available to them... They need to achieve the goal they have set. Those are strikes against all critical infrastructure. It's not the energy sector alone, because the enemy has already hit hydroelectric facilities as well."
Ihnat stated that Russia has no obvious successes on the front lines of its full-scale war against Ukraine, and is facing problems with materiel and human resources.
"That's why they want to prioritize hitting energy facilities in the fall and winter period, because a lot of life-sustaining factors depend on them," said Ihnat.
"This aerial terrorism will continue.”
He added that if Russia does receive ballistic missiles from Iran, it will also use them for strikes.
Earlier, President Volodymyr Zelenskyy said that Russia was building up forces for possible new massive strikes on Ukrainian infrastructure, primarily energy facilities.
