The United States, South Korea and France will send almost 200 generators to Ukraine soon to support the country after Russian missile attacks on critical infrastructure.

In particular, the United States Agency for International Development (USAID) in Ukraine will provide 80 generators to help keep the power on.

“This support is just one part of the U.S. response to Russia’s cruel, sustained attack on critical infrastructure as we continue to stand with Ukraine,” U.S. Ambassador to Ukraine Bridget Brink wrote on Twitter on Nov. 25.

The Verkhovna Rada, Ukraine’s parliament, reported on Nov. 25 that South Korea would provide 20 high-power generators to Ukraine.

“An agreement was reached with the Korean side on the transfer of 20 generators with a capacity of 450-500 kW, as well as five DOOSAN DX17Z mini-excavators to Ukraine as humanitarian aid,” Ukraine’s Ambassador to South Korea Dmytro Ponomarenko said.

“The generators are expected to be delivered by a chartered flight on Dec. 12 of this year.”

In addition, France is ready to send 100 high-power generators to Ukraine.

“To help the population survive, France is sending 100 high-power generators to Ukraine, while Russia wants to turn winter into a weapon of war,” French Foreign Minister Catherine Colonna tweeted on Nov. 25.

Colonna noted that strikes against civilian infrastructures are war crimes.

As reported earlier, Latvia purchased electric generators and thermal guns to be sent to Ukraine.

Russia launched yet another wave of 67 cruise missile strikes against Ukraine’s critical infrastructure facilities on Nov. 23, the country’s Commander-in-Chief Valerii Zaluzhnyi reported.

The Air Defence Forces downed 51 of them, as well as all five Lancet suicide drones launched by Russia in the attack.

A total of 31 missiles were launched at Kyiv, of which 21 were intercepted.

As a result of the Russian attack on civilian infrastructure, Kyiv was left without power and water supplies.
