(MENAFN) Russia is preparing for a “massive attack” on Ukraine’s critical infrastructure, as said by a Ukrainian official.
“We understand that a massive attack is being prepared and is possible any day … Remember that neither day nor night matters to the enemy. Their task is terror,” Nataliya Gumenyuk, spokesperson for Ukraine's Southern Defense Forces, informed Ukraine’s Channel 24 on Sunday.
She added Ukrainian experts are taking needed precautionary measures.
“For almost two weeks, the enemy has not launched massive missile strikes. However, this pause may end at any time,” she added, noting that the Ukrainian army is beefing up protection at power plants and other important infrastructure.
Gumenyuk went on to say Russia has also ramped up its presence in the Black Sea.
“There are 21 ships, including four carriers of Kalibr-type missiles, with a total of 24 missiles. Since there are also two submarine carriers, it makes it difficult for us to detect missile launches, so air raid alarms should be taken very seriously,” she continued.
