World Could Implement Five Measures after Two New Large-Scale Russian Attacks on Ukraine – Ukraine's Foreign Minister

Tuesday, 2 January 2024

Dmytro Kuleba, Minister of Foreign Affairs of Ukraine, is waiting for Western countries to react and take decisive measures after another large-scale Russian attack on Ukraine on 2 January.

"Putin escalates terror against Ukraine. Today was the second mass missile strike in just four days. Civilian infrastructure has been damaged; people, including children, have been injured and killed.

We expect all states to strongly condemn the attack and take resolute action," Dmytro Kuleba wrote on Twitter (X).

Kuleba thinks the world could implement five measures right now:

  • expedite the delivery of additional air defence systems and ammunition to Ukraine;
  • provide Ukraine with combat drones of all types;
  • provide Ukraine with long-range missiles with a range of over 300 km;
  • approve the use of frozen Russian assets to help Ukraine;
  • isolate Russian diplomats in relevant capitals and international organisations.

"The terrorist regime in Moscow must realise that the international community will not turn a blind eye to the murder of civilians and the destruction of civilian infrastructure in Ukraine," Kuleba stressed.

Russia launched a massive missile attack on Ukraine on the morning of 2 January. Missile debris has crashed in the Pecherskyi, Obolonskyi, Holosiivskyi and Sviatoshynskyi districts of the city of Kyiv. There were also hits in Kharkiv.

Valerii Zaluzhnyi, Commander-in-Chief of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, reported that the Russians had launched 99 missiles of various types at Ukraine on the night of 1-2 January 2024, 72 of which were destroyed.

Bridget Brink, US Ambassador to Ukraine, said it was "urgent and critical" to support Ukraine now in order to stop Putin amid a new Russian large-scale attack on the morning of Tuesday, 2 January.

Poland scrambled its F-16 fighter jets due to a new Russian large-scale attack on 2 January.
