London [UK]: Describing the fatal attacks on civilian areas in Kyiv and other regions of Ukraine as a clear “sign of Putin’s desperation,” UK Prime Minister Liz Truss on Monday said that Britain will continue to provide vital military aid in Ukraine’s fight for freedom.
Amid the escalating tensions, the British Prime Minister reaffirmed her support for Ukraine and said that the country will stand right behind the war-torn nation in its fight for freedom. In a tweet, the UK Prime Minister wrote, “The appalling attacks on civilian areas in Kyiv and elsewhere are a clear sign of Putin’s desperation. Ukrainians are succeeding, and Britain will stand right behind them as we continue to provide vital military aid in Ukraine’s fight for freedom.”
Multiple explosions were reported in the Ukrainian cities of Lviv, Zhytomyr, Khmelnytsky, Dnipro and, Ternopil. Eyewitnesses reported powerful explosions and power outages in Kyiv, according to the local media, The Kyiv Independent.
Meanwhile, UN chief Antonio Guterres condemned the fatal bombardments by Russia across Ukraine on Monday and said that the attack is another unacceptable escalation of the war and, as always, civilians are paying the highest price.
“The Secretary-General is deeply shocked by today’s large-scale missile attacks by the armed forces of the Russian Federation on cities across Ukraine that reportedly resulted in widespread damage to civilian areas and led to dozens of people being killed and injured,” the official statement by the Spokesperson for the Secretary-General on Ukraine read.
