The Russian defence ministry said on Thursday it hit oil, gas and power energy facilities in Ukraine with "massive strikes" using high-precision long-range weapons and drones overnight.

"As a result, the work of Ukrainian military industry enterprises was disrupted, the transfer of reserves to combat areas was thwarted, and the supply of fuel to the squads and military units of the Armed Forces of Ukraine was hampered," it said.
