"This is a multidimensional issue." Danilov assesses threat of Russian attacks on critical infrastructure and points to problems with sanctions
Oleksiy Danilov, Secretary of the National Security and Defense Council, said that Ukraine cannot predict 100% where the terrorist country Russia will send its drones and missiles. Therefore, we need to be prepared for the next attacks of the occupiers on the critical infrastructure of our country.
In addition, the Russians are circumventing Western sanctions, which gives them weapons for new attacks on Ukraine. Danilov spoke about this in an interview with ABC.
According to the NSDC Secretary, no one can be 100 percent prepared. He explained that it is difficult to predict the enemy's actions. Therefore, Ukraine does not know which targets will be the enemy's priority.
He also emphasized that Ukraine is doing everything possible to protect its infrastructure. But much also depends on Western sanctions against the aggressor country.
Russian terrorists are attacking with Shahed kamikaze drones, which are made from components from allied countries. Therefore, the sanctions imposed by the West are not very effective in limiting the use of Western technologies used by Russia.
In addition, the NSDC Secretary emphasized that the war is a multidimensional issue, full of variables that Ukraine has no control over.
"There are factors that we cannot influence, that the Russians cannot influence. Being able to talk about the future is a difficult task," Danilov said.
As a reminder, Vadym Skibitskyi, a representative of the Defence Intelligence of Ukraine, said that the Russian terrorist army has begun preparations for another attack on critical infrastructure in Ukraine. The enemy is now actively engaged in reconnaissance.
Earlier it was reported that on the night of September 26, Russia carried out another massive attack with Shahed-136/131 kamikaze drones in Odesa region. Most of the drones were destroyed in the air, but there were also hits: the port infrastructure was destroyed, trucks burned down and drivers were injured.
