France condemned russia's mass missile attack on Ukraine on December 5 and reiterated its further support
France strongly condemns the bombings carried out by russia on December 5 across the territory of Ukraine, which again targeted the energy infrastructure, resulting in blackouts of electricity and heating.
This is stated on the website of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of France.
"These bombings, which did not pursue any military objective, took the lives of new victims and caused the destruction of numerous important objects of civilian infrastructure. This systematic attack on the population in the middle of winter reflects a clear desire on the part of russia to make the Ukrainian people suffer, to deprive them of water, heating, and of electricity to undermine their stability, while the russian armed forces continue to be defeated by the Ukrainian army," the French Foreign Ministry stated.
At the same time, the foreign policy department emphasized that "these actions are unequivocally war crimes" and again emphasized the position that the fast haste and the expected increase in crimes on the part of russia in no way weaken France's determination to support Ukraine and fight impunity.
The Ministry of Foreign Affairs emphasizes that France will remain mobilized to ensure that those responsible for every international law violation and war crime are brought to justice.
Therefore, France supports the investigations conducted by Ukrainian justice and the International Criminal Court, including with the help of specialized investigators.
It is also noted that France will continue to support Ukraine, together with which it is organizing an international conference on December 13 at the Ministry of Europe and Foreign Affairs in Paris, the purpose of which is to provide concrete answers to the urgent needs of the Ukrainian population in order to meet the winter and strengthen the coordination of international aid.
On December 5, the russian federation carried out another massive missile attack on Ukrainian infrastructure; most of the missiles were intercepted by air defense forces.
However, there were hits in several regions of the country.
At the same time, the Ministry of Internal Affairs of Moldova said that not far from Briceni, Border Police officers found a fallen rocket.
A criminal case was initiated.
