Russia must be recognized as state sponsor of terrorism all over the world.
Against the backdrop of Ukraine's gains in the east, Russians respond with an act of terror against a critical infrastructure object, heat and power plant No. 5. This has resulted in power cuts in Kharkiv, Sumy, and Poltava oblasts. Electricians are working to restore power asap.— Stratcom Centre UA (@StratcomCentre) September 11, 2022
