Russia destroyed many thermal power facilities
Active hostilities must be completed before the onset of cold weather because of the danger of strikes against thermal power facilities.
It is vital for Ukraine to end the active phase of the war before the onset of winter, head of the Presidential Office Andriy Yermak said in an interview. Interfax-Ukrainepublished on Wednesday, August 10th.
“Of course, such risks (strikes on thermal power facilities) persist throughout the war. The Russian army continues to attack our infrastructure facilities. This is one of their goals, they do not even hide it. Accordingly, this is one of the reasons why we want to take maximum measures to complete the active part of the war before the end of autumn,” Yermak explained.
The head of the Presidential Office stressed that the longer Russian troops stay in the temporarily occupied territories of Ukraine and try to dig in there, the more difficult it will be to liberate these territories.
Earlier, Aleksey Arestovich, adviser to the President’s Office, said that the war in Ukraine would definitely end within 2.5 years.
