Statement by Oleg Orlov, Sergei Davidis, Co-Director of the Memorial Centre for the Defence of Human Rights

On 11 September 2022, Russian missiles hit several major power stations in different Ukrainian oblasts.

Speaking on the state TV channel ‘Rossiya-1’, Dmitry Kiselyov, one of the main Kremlin propagandists, named the strikes, which had resulted in blackouts, cuts in water supplies and communications, and stopped trains, a response to the Ukrainian Armed Forces’ counter-offensive.  “It looks as if this is just the beginning,” he threatened.

It is the logic of terrorists that responds to military defeat through deliberate strikes on critical civilian infrastructure on which life in cities and villages is dependent.

We are Russian citizens and are ashamed of the actions committed in our country’s name.
