According to President Volodymyr Selenskyj, Ukraine is striving to hold Russia internationally responsible for the war of aggression and the resulting consequences.

"The main theme of all these events is Russia's responsibility for war and terror." After briefly listing the latest Russian attacks and recent damage, including the loss of water supplies in the southern Ukrainian city of Mykolayiv, Zelenskyy accused the invaders of destructiveness.

"Well, what can one say about her?

This is the real essence of these random comrades who took over Russia,” said Zelenskyy.

"After 20 years of rule, a large part of their state is as ruined as if there had been a war."

"They are capable of nothing but destruction," the Ukrainian head of state accused the Russians.

“And what they are doing against Ukraine now is their attempt to take revenge.

To take revenge for the fact that the Ukrainians have repeatedly defended themselves against them.” His country will defend itself against Russia with all means.

"Ukraine will never take orders from these comrades in Moscow," he said.

Ukraine will do everything to restore every object, every house, every business destroyed by the invaders.

Ukraine-News: Ambassador asks for generators and weapon systems

Initial report of November 28

: Kiev — Russian attacks on Ukrainian infrastructure continue.

In the past few weeks, the capital Kyiv has again been the target of extensive rocket attacks by the Russian armed forces.

Russia repeatedly hit the Ukrainian energy supply and caused widespread blackouts in the country.

More than 100,000 people in Kyiv were still without electricity and water at the weekend.

The city administration has therefore also set up special "heating points" where citizens can warm up.

Ukraine war: Melnyk successor Makejev asks the federal government for further help

Ukraine needs increased support at this stage of the war.

The Ukrainian ambassador to Germany, Oleksij Makejev, has therefore asked the federal government for further help.

After the focus of German support since the beginning of the war had been primarily on modern weapon systems, other tools are now also needed.

Because of the targeted Russian attacks on the power supply, his country needs generators and transformers, Makeyev said on Monday in the ZDF "Morgenmagazin".

Nevertheless, Makeyev still considers it necessary to deliver further weapon systems from Germany to Kyiv.

It's about fighting the cause of the destruction.

"That's why we need air defense systems and weapons," said the ambassador.

Makeyev explained that Ukraine still needs heavy combat equipment such as tanks.

So far, Germany had refused the delivery of modern western-style battle tanks.

"We are now in a trusting dialogue with the federal government," said Makejev.

"We need guns to win this war."

Ukrainian Ambassador Makeyev — 'need weapons to win this war'

Winning the war means getting all of Ukraine's territory back under Ukrainian control - including Crimea, which was annexed in 2014, he clarified.

The 47-year-old has been the Ukrainian ambassador to Germany since October 24, 2022.

Makeyev took over the post from his predecessor Andrei Melnyk, who moved to the Ukrainian Foreign Ministry after more than seven years.

Melnyk was appointed Ukraine's deputy foreign minister on November 18.
