Selenskyj had himself instructed the Ukrainian UN ambassador to request an emergency meeting on the heavy Russian rocket fire on the Ukrainian capital Kyiv. "The murder of civilians, the destruction of civilian infrastructure are acts of terrorism," he said on Twitter before the meeting. The international community must give a "resolute answer".
After the Russian shelling, the water and electricity supply in Kyiv failed on Wednesday. According to the Ukrainian authorities, there were also blackouts in other parts of the country, and even the neighboring Republic of Moldova was affected. The ongoing Russian missile attacks are hitting Ukraine hard. Many people are without water, without electricity and without heating.
