"When the enemy strikes at Ukraine's energy system, I ask you to save electricity because this is a necessary condition for our victory." The Head of the Ukrainian Greek Catholic Church, His Beatitude Sviatoslav, said this during the 113th week of the full-scale invasion by Russia.

This was reported by the Information Department of the UGCC.

The head of the UGCC noted that the past week was marked by an intensification of crimes by Russians against the civilian population. Russia has created a new model of this war, which is the systematic, daily destruction of civilian infrastructure objects and the destruction of cities and villages in Ukraine, and we were the witnesses to this.

"Throughout the past week," said the spiritual leader of the UGCC, "we have seen a new surge in the enemy's attacks on Ukraine's energy infrastructure. Almost every night, Russians strike our cities and villages, trying to cut off entire regions of our state from power supplies."

According to him, these days, Russia has particularly targeted the Kyiv region. A large Trypillya thermal power plant, which provided electricity to about 3 million people, was destroyed.

"It is obvious that such attacks are not just violations of international law but also crimes against humanitarian law, which retains its full force even during armed conflict," emphasized the Head of the UGCC.
