United Nation:

Diplomats say Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky will speak at an emergency meeting of the United Nations Security Council on Wednesday about Russian attacks that have caused power outages in neighboring Moldova.

Volodymyr Zelensky will speak during the emergency debate – requested by Kyiv and which will begin at 4:00 p.m. (21:00 GMT) in New York – via video link, the two diplomats told AFP.

The Ukrainian leader said in a tweet that he had instructed his country’s ambassador to the world body, Sergiy Kyslytsya, to request the meeting.

“Killing civilians, destroying civilian infrastructure is an act of terrorism. Ukraine continues to demand a resolute response from the international community to these crimes,” Zelensky said.

In a letter to the chairman of the Council requesting a meeting to be viewed by AFP, Kyslytsya wrote that Russia “committed another act of terror against Ukrainian civilians” with Wednesday’s strikes.

The air strike devastated Ukraine’s already damaged electricity grid, killing many people and disconnecting three nuclear power plants from the grid.

Ukraine’s military said Russian forces fired about 70 cruise missiles at targets across the country on Wednesday and also deployed attack drones.

Neighboring Moldova even said it was suffering from widespread power outages due to the new wave of attacks and its EU-friendly president, Maia Sandu, accused Russia of abandoning her country “in the shadows” dark”.
