More missiles hit as Ukrainians brace for 'worst winter' since Second World War

news-update

Another barrage of Russian missile strikes has hit Ukraine, dealing a setback to the country's struggle to restore its power network as winter sets in.
     
A spokesman for Ukraine's Foreign Affairs Ministry says Russia has launched a new wave of attacks on ``critical civilian infrastructure.''
     
Oleg Nikolenko spoke to The Canadian Press in a small concrete cell in a ministry bunker several storeys underground.
     
He says more than 10-million Ukrainians, about a quarter of the population, are now without power.
     
For weeks, the Russian military has been systematically targeting Ukraine's transportation and electricity distribution infrastructure.
     
Today's bombardment came as the European Parliament labelled Russia a state sponsor of terrorism and called for tougher sanctions from member states.
