He made the statement on Telegram.

"Last night there were over 60 Shaheds and almost 90 missiles of various types. The world sees the targets of Russian terrorists as clearly as possible: power plants and energy supply lines, a hydroelectric dam, ordinary residential buildings, even a trolleybus. Russia is at war against ordinary people's lives. My condolences to the families and friends of the victims of this terror," the President wrote.

According to him, rescuers, power engineers, regional and local authorities, police, and utility companies are already helping people. Electricity supply is also being restored.

Zelenskyy said that Russian missiles do not have delays like aid packages to Ukraine do. A Shahed drone has no indecision, unlike some politicians.

"It is important to understand the cost of delays and postponed decisions. Patriot systems need to protect Kharkiv and Zaporizhzhia, and we need air defense to protect people, infrastructure, homes and dams. Our partners know exactly what we need. They can definitely support us. We need these solutions. Life must be protected from these cruel beings from Moscow," Zelenskyy added.

  • On March 22, Russian troops tried to carry out a massive attack on Ukraine. As a result, the occupied Zaporizhzhia nuclear power plant was on the verge of blackout.
  • On the evening of March 21, Russia launched an attack on Ukraine with drones. Russian drones targeted the territory of Ukraine from the south. On the night of March 22, Russian troops launched cruise missiles from Tu-95MS aircraft.
  • The invading Russian forces also attacked the largest hydroelectric power plant in Ukraine. Russian propaganda channels began spreading fake news about the alleged destruction of the dam.
