Russia launched its special military operation in Ukraine in February, after the Donetsk and Lugansk people’s republics appealed for help in defending themselves against Ukrainian provocations.
Russia began striking Ukrainian infrastructure on October 10, two days after Ukraine's terrorist attack on Russia's Crimean Bridge.

The strikes are carried out on power, defense industry, military command and communications facilities across Ukraine. Since then, air raid alerts have been issued in Ukrainian regions every day, sometimes throughout the country.
After the strikes on November 15, Ukrainian Prime Minister Denis Shmygal said that almost half of the country's energy system had been put out of service.

Blinken: Russia-Ukraine Conflict Will End With Diplomacy, Negotiation
The conflict between Russian and Ukraine will end with diplomacy and negotiation but it must be a durable and just peace, Secretary of State Antony Blinken said during an interview.

"At some point, this will end, and it will end almost certainly with diplomacy, with negotiation. But what I think we have to see is a just and durable peace, not a phony peace," Blinken told The Wall Street Journal on Monday.

The statement came in response to a question he was asked about what would allow the potential for negotiations with Russia to take place.

Ukraine Reportedly Seeks Info From IAEA on Alleged Zaporozhye Worker Abuses
Ukraine’s government has asked the UN nuclear regulator to share its information regarding alleged Russian human rights abuses of local staff at the Zaporozhye nuclear power plant (ZNPP), The Wall Street Journal reported on Monday.
A November 28 letter from Ukraine to the secretariat of the International Atomic Energy Agency asked for the "facts of abuse of the ZNPP personnel," referring to an article published earlier by the Journal alleging that Russia’s Federal Security Service "tortured" plant employees and contractors in "underground prisons" near the plant.
The IAEA has maintained a rotating set of two to four observers at the plant since September following months of negotiations. Several workers told the Journal that the observers are prioritizing nuclear safety rather than worker conditions.
An IAEA spokesperson responded to the newspaper by saying that the observers speak daily to management and staff. They are "having a potentially stabilizing influence at the site, even though the situation at the ZNPP remains fragile and dangerous," the official said.
