Russia using cold as ‘weapon of mass destruction’: Zelensky


Ukraine President Volodymyr Zelensky said Tuesday that Russia was trying to use the cold this winter as a “weapon of mass destruction” by striking energy infrastructure.
“The Kremlin wants to transform the cold this winter into a weapon of mass destruction,” Zelensky told a meeting of French mayors in a video message.
“To survive this winter and to prevent Russia transforming the cold into an instrument of terror and submission, we need a lot of things,” he added.

Millions of Ukrainian lives are at risk this winter as the country’s power grid struggles under a barrage of Russian attacks, the World Health Organization warned on Monday.
Moscow has been targeting energy infrastructure, launching missile strikes that have left homes across the country without electricity as temperatures plunge.
The damage is having “knock-out effects” on Ukraine’s health system, WHO regional director for Europe Hans Kluge told reporters.
“This winter will be about survival,” he warned, saying it would be “life-threatening for millions of people in Ukraine”.
Up to three million Ukrainians could leave their homes in search of warmth and safety, he said.
“They will face unique health challenges, including respiratory infections such as Covid-19, pneumonia, influenza, and the serious risk of diphtheria and measles in (an) under-vaccinated population,” he added.
Meanwhile Ukraine said it had discovered four Russian torture sites in the southern city of Kherson, which Moscow’s forces pulled out of earlier this month leaving behind a trail of misery and destruction.

He urged the Association of French Mayors to send generators, support for de-mining operations and equipment for Ukraine’s emergency services and medics.
“I call on you to be very concrete with your help and to support out towns and communities against terrorism,” he added.
