“Massive missile attack” struck infrastructure that ensures security of deliveries to the EU, the Ukrainian president said.

Russia’s latest missile attack on Ukraine hit energy infrastructure used to supply the European Union with natural gas, Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy said.

Ukraine’s energy system was struck by 34 Russian rockets in a “massive missile attack” Saturday, Zelenskyy said in a video posted on X, formerly known as Twitter, on Saturday evening.

The attack targeted “the power grid and the gas transit system, particularly the gas infrastructure that ensures the security of deliveries to the EU,” the president said.


Russia has intensified its assaults against Ukrainian power stations in recent weeks, and its missiles are now also hitting gas storage facilities that were used by some EU companies last winter to prevent energy shortages.
