"Ukrainians must prepare for a long and hard winter marked by Russian attacks," President Volodymyr Zelensky said in his nightly address. “As long as they have missiles, they will continue hitting Ukraine’s critical infrastructure”, said Zelensky accusing Russia of “using the cold against people”. According to Zelensky, the Ukrainian army is preparing to respond to the attacks in the best way possible. Ukrainians must be prepared to help fellow citizens in distress in the coming months. 

Meanwhile, millions of Ukrainians are still without electricity and water after the Russian strikes. In Kyiv, snow fell and temperatures hovered around freezing on Sunday as millions in and around the Ukrainian capital struggled with disruptions to electricity supply and central heating caused by the waves of Russian air strikes. “Russia’s attacks on Ukraine’s energy infrastructure amount to genocide”, Ukraine’s Prosecutor General Andriy Kostin said in an interview for BBC. In his words, 11,000 Ukrainian children were forcibly deported to Russia.

"Russia will not supply oil and gas to countries supporting price cap", Kremlin Spokesman Dmitry Peskov said

However, it became clear from his statement for the Russian state television that Moscow’s position was not final. “As of now, we stand by President Putin’s position that we will not supply oil and gas to the countries which would set and join the cap. But now we hear talk of different figures, with too many nuances, which we have to take into account”, Dmitry Peskov added. The European Union intends to introduce a price cap on Russian oil as of December 5 aimed at slashing revenues for Moscow’s war in Ukraine. However, Member States have not yet agreed on the level of Russian oil price cap.
