On the eve of Ukraine’s Independence Day and with the war approaching the mark of six months, the United States warned of the risks of the Russians stepping up civilian attacks on Wednesday (21).

O The US State Department issued a security alert, saying it “has information that Russia is stepping up efforts to launch attacks against Ukraine’s civilian infrastructure and government facilities in the coming days.”

Risks increased after Russia claimed that Ukrainian intelligence was responsible for the death of Darya Dugina, daughter of an important Russian theorist and Putin’s right-hand man, in the explosion of a car outside Moscow last Saturday (15).

Ukraine denies involvement in the attack, but, given the risks, Kiev banned mass events in the capital between 22 and 21 in August due to the “high probability” of Russian missile strikes, spokeswoman Kateryna Datsenko announced.

“The blue and yellow flag of Ukraine will fly again where it should be . In all temporarily occupied cities and towns in Ukraine,” Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky said at a press conference on Tuesday (19).

One of the main possible targets of the new attacks is Zaporizhzhia, the largest nuclear power plant in Europe, located in southeastern Ukraine, where continuous bombing and fighting raise fears of a nuclear catastrophe.
