„The hideous practice of the Russian invaders is that they are not simply attacking energy objects,” Antonenko told Radio Poland’s Danuta Isler after the conference.
„What they do is, for example, they attack the substation and in this way they influence immediately power supply, water supply, including heat and cold water, and, last but not least, communication and connection,” he said.
