Almost all Russian missiles, drones and bombs target civilian infrastructure and civilians.

This was stated by the Deputy Head of the Ukrainian Mission to the OSCE, Viktoriia Kuvshynnykova, during a meeting of the OSCE Permanent Council, according to Ukrinform.

“Russian propagandists do not hide their intentions, openly stating that their goal is to make Ukrainian cities uninhabitable. In addition to missiles and drones, the Russians are massively dropping guided bombs on Kharkiv, Sumy and other districts and settlements along the front line,” Kuvshynnykova stated.

She also mentioned the recent attack on Chernihiv, which resulted in 18 killed civilians and 78 civilians injured.

“Every day Russia kills people and destroys critical infrastructure in Ukraine. Yesterday, another horrific attack took place. Russia fired three missiles into a densely populated area of Chernihiv. At least 18 people were killed and 78 others injured. This is terror at its most horrific. Just one of many cases,” she said.

The Ukrainian politician reiterated the message Ukraine has repeated multiple times in the recent weeks, which is that the allies should strenghten Ukrainian air defense capabilities and that “providing Ukraine with military assistance remains the best and cheapest option to avoid a dangerous escalation that could lead to civilian deaths and destruction of infrastructure.”
