The Russians are building up strength for a new massive strike on Ukrainian cities.

As President Volodymyr Zelensky said in his evening address on November 6, Russia ordered ballistic missiles from Iran for this.

Zelensky clarified that it is primarily about strikes on the energy infrastructure. 

“The terrorist state is concentrating forces and means for a possible repetition of massive strikes on our infrastructure. First of all, energy. For this, Russia needed Iranian missiles. We are preparing to respond,” he said.

The head of state noted that he had discussed with European Commission President Ursula von der Leyen today about Iran’s responsibility for participating in the Kremlin’s armed aggression. 

“The Iranian regime must be punished. And we will raise this issue not only at the level of our traditional partners. The whole world will know that the Iranian regime is helping Russia to continue this war … Everyone who helps Russia continue this war must answer with her and for the consequences of this war,” Zelensky stressed.
