Top U.S. diplomat Blinken: Putin’s attacks on Ukraine energy grid will not work

BUCHAREST, Nov 30 —Russian President Vladimir Putin has focused his “fire and ire” on Ukraine’s civilian population, bombing more than a third of Ukraine’s energy system – water and electricity supply – in a strategy that will not work, US Secretary of State Antony Blinken said today.

“These are President Putin’s new targets. He’s hitting them hard,” Blinken said after a Nato meeting in Bucharest. “His strategy has not, and will not, work.” — Reuters
