Russian President Vladimir Putin has called on the Russian military to stop bombing Russian territories from Ukraine, which he said has left many people homeless or without electricity.
Putin was speaking at a government meeting on the restoration of destroyed homes and infrastructure in the regions of southwestern Russia bordering Ukraine.
“Of course, the priority task is to eliminate the possibility of detonation. But this is the work of the military department,” Putin said, as quoted by Agerpres.
Ukraine has not claimed responsibility for the attacks inside Russian territory, but has described it as “karma” for Moscow’s invasion, which has destroyed Ukrainian cities, systematically targeted the country’s energy infrastructure, and often left people without electricity and water in the middle of winter. Reuters notes.
Putin cited the Russian regions of Belgorod, Bryansk and Kursk, as well as Crimea, which was illegally annexed by Russia in 2014, as areas where homes were damaged or destroyed.
He added that people were facing “very serious” problems and needed reparations and reparations.
“Many people found themselves in difficult situations, losing their homes, being forced to move in with relatives or temporary accommodation, facing interruptions in the supply of water, heat and electricity,” he added.
His comments underscored Moscow’s frustration at the frequency of attacks in southern Russia, which have included attacks on targets such as electricity substations and weapons and fuel depots, Reuters reports.
