Sergey Lavrov, the Kremlin’s foreign minister, defended Russia’s ongoing attacks on Ukraine’s energy infrastructure stating that they were legitimate targets. “This infrastructure supports the combat capability of the Ukrainian armed forces and nationalist battalions,” Removing the energy facilities, he said, would in turn minimize the number of Russian casualties as these infrastructures “allow you to keep pumping deadly weapons into Ukraine.”

The U.K.’s Ministry of Defense revealed on Monday that Russia has lost over 60 fixed-wing aircraft so far in the invasion. At the start of the war, Russia was operating as high as 300 missions per day but is now “conducting significantly” fewer missions per day. “This decrease is likely a result of the threat of Ukrainian air defenses, limitations on the flying hours available, and increasingly worse weather,”

“With Russia’s ground attack tactics largely reliant on visual identification and unguided munitions, the Russian air force will likely continue a low rate of ground attack operations through the poor winter weather.”
