 According to a statement from Ukraine's Air Force on Telegram, the country is facing an attack from various directions, including air and sea-based cruise missiles launched from strategic aircraft and ships.

The Air Force described the assault as a "massive missile attack."

 Since October, Russia has launched attacks on Ukraine's infrastructure with the aim of disrupting the country's utilities, including electricity, heat, and water, during the winter months.

 This strategy is meant to weaken the Ukrainian government and its ability to continue fighting the ongoing conflict. However, this tactic has had limited success thus far.
