"The main goal is to destroy our strategic and critical infrastructure at any cost and penetrate the air defense dome, which exists in various cities across Ukraine," he said during a TV interview.

Russians are resorting to all weaponry available, including sophisticated ones like the Kinzhal missile, to inflict damage and achieve their objectives of crippling energy assets.

"We see that they won't halt until they either completely destroy it or we halt them at the stage they are already in," Yevlash noted.
