Commenting on the massive missile attack on Ukraine on 2 January, Foreign Minister Dmytro Kuleba called on partners to speed up the supply of weapons to Kyiv
Ukraine’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs reported the information.
The Minister stressed that the objects attacked by the Russian army on January 2 were exclusively civilian.
"Russia continues to target Ukrainian women, children and the elderly," Kuleba said.
He stressed that "the terrorist regime in Moscow must feel that the international community will not turn a blind eye to the killing of Ukrainian civilians and the destruction of Ukraine's critical infrastructure."
"Minister of Foreign Affairs Dmytro Kuleba called on foreign states to respond decisively to another Russian terrorist attack by taking a set of measures, which will include, among other things, accelerating the supply of additional air defense systems, combat drones of all types, long-range missiles with a range of 300+ kilometers, making a decision to transfer frozen Russian assets for the needs of Ukraine, and terminating contacts with Russian diplomats in the relevant capitals and international organizations," the Foreign Ministry said in a statement.
On the morning of January 2, Russian forces deployed strategic aviation to strike at Ukraine. The explosions occurred in Kyiv and Kharkiv, and there were casualties.
