Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov warned on Wednesday that Russia is working on new ways to disrupt Western arms supplies to Ukraine, signaling that Russia will start targeting more Ukrainian infrastructure.
“We observe that Ukraine is receiving more and more and better Western weapons,” Lavrov said in an interview on Russian TV, according to Al Jazeera. He said strikes on “railway lines, bridges and tunnels” are being considered.
Russia has been pounding Ukrainian energy infrastructure since October, leaving millions of Ukrainians without power and heat for the winter. But Lavrov’s comments suggest that Russia will be hitting other types of infrastructure.
The Russian diplomat said that the strikes on Ukraine’s energy grid have already helped disrupt the supply of weapons but added that more will be done. “And I am convinced that there are other plans being applied in this regard,” he said.
Lavrov and other Russian officials have stressed that more US and other Western military aid will escalate and drag out the war.
On Thursday, Russia launched another barrage on Ukraine’s power grid, striking targets with missiles and drones. Ukraine’s Defense Ministry suggested that it was one of the heaviest Russian barrages in the war, writing on Twitter that “Russia had been saving one of the most massive missile attacks since the beginning of the full-scale invasion for the last days of the year.”
Russia’s barrages on Ukraine’s energy infrastructure began after the truck bombing of the Kerch Bridge, which connects Crimea to the Russian mainland. In recent weeks, Ukraine has stepped up drone attacks deep inside Russia, and Moscow has stepped up its bombardment.

I wish the Russian Army good luck and Godspeed in destroying what’s left of Ukraine, the Ukrainian Army, the foreign mercenaries, and Nazis in that cesspool of a nation. Ukraine has been the most corrupt nation in the world, and the people there are too stupid to see it. They build monuments to Stephan Bandera, who was just a murdering thug, and treat his memory as something to be cherished. They are second in ignorance only to the American people, who have been supporting the lying Mainstream Media for decades, and supporting an administration that sends billions and billions of dollars in equipment and aid to Ukraine, while American veterans and children live homeless and hungry on their streets. They also support millions of illegal, criminal invaders by feeding them, housing them, and providing free medical care, while our own citizens do without.
Strikes on Ukrainian (wish UK and Netherland were also included) “railway lines, bridges and tunnels” are better late than never!
Good riddance! All able-bodied Ukra men must flee. Twenty and thirty years ago, here in Norway, the Ukraine was famous for two things, 1: Filling the streets of Oslo with “Russian whores” who wer in fact from the Ukraine, 2: Providing Nordic homiósexuals with instant child porn produced in Kiew and other seemy places, which contained maeleware that killed the PCs my perverse aquaintances had viewed whils borrowing my PC. I hope these low-lives all be expelled from Western Europe and go on to the US of North A so as to enrich the prevailing “culture” there.
You know, Sir… Ukraine will be destroyed totally as a country. There is no other way to deal with them now.
The United States Congress is bound and determined to protect it’s Ukrainian money laundry. I don’t know how many in Congress are benefitting, but my guess would be, most of Congress. Those who continue to vote for more billions of dollars in aid to Ukraine can’t be stupid enough to believe that Ukraine is going to win this conflict. They are simply laundering these billions of dollars through Ukraine and probably defense contractors, and back into their onw pockets. Nancy Pelosi has been taken out of the picture, so her hefty share can now be divided among the others.
