According to the Ukrainian president, 4,000 so-called “points of steadfastness” have been prepared nationwide so far. Selenksky said on Wednesday night that power failures would occur again as a result of further attacks by Russian forces. All basic services are provided there free of charge around the clock: electricity, mobile communications and internet, heating, water and first aid. A map with all the addresses can be found on a specially set up website. You have to be prepared for every scenario, emphasized Zelensky. “I’m sure we can all get through this winter together if we help each other.”

In an interview with the Bild newspaper, Kiev’s Mayor Vitaly Klitschko warned that one had to be prepared for the “worst scenario” of widespread power failures at low temperatures:

“Then parts of the city would have to be evacuated, but we don’t want it to get that far.”

Russia has carried out multiple rocket attacks on Ukraine’s critical infrastructure in recent weeks. In many places there are interruptions in the electricity and water supply. The Office of the President of Ukraine recently announced that the energy supply situation is critical. Almost all large hydro and thermal power plants in Ukraine were damaged. Because of this, shutdowns are necessary to stabilize the system and maintain a balance between consumption and production. Selenksky calls on citizens to save energy.

By blocking RT, the EU aims to silence a critical, non-pro-Western source of information. And not only with regard to the Ukraine war. Access to our website has been made more difficult, several social media have blocked our accounts. It is now up to all of us whether journalism beyond mainstream narratives can continue to be pursued in Germany and the EU. If you like our articles, feel free to share them wherever you are active. It’s possible because the EU hasn’t banned our work or reading and sharing our articles. Note: However, with the amendment of the “Audiovisual Media Service Act” on April 13, Austria introduced a change in this regard, which may also affect private individuals. That’s why we ask you not to share our posts on social media in Austria until the situation has been clarified.
