Russia 'deliberately' cutting off electricity in Ukraine

Norwegian Foreign Minister Anniken Huitfeldt underscored on Monday that Moscow is "deliberately" cutting off electricity and heating in Ukraine as winter approaches, noting that Ukrainians are forced to either "flee" their homes or "freeze."

"It is a despicable attempt to use the cold as a weapon to drive people out of their homes," the Norwegian foreign minister said during her visit to Kiev, where she is joined by her counterparts from six European nations. "Russia is pursuing this war with an unprecedented degree of cynicism," she added.

According to the statement, the foreign minister of Norway is said to have brought with her a recently signed deal on the funding of NOK 2 billion to enable Ukraine to purchase natural gas during the coming winter, as well as NOK 1 billion to repair the electricity infrastructure.
