The Minister of Foreign Affairs, Dmytro Kuleba, called on the international media to stop reporting that the Kremlin dictator’s missile terror against Ukraine was “provoked” by the explosions on the Crimean bridge, since Putin had committed terrible crimes even before that.

The head of Ukrainian diplomacy addressed the issue on Twitter, Ukrinform reports.

“No, Putin was not ‘provoked’ to unleash missile terror by ‘Crimea Bridge’. Russia had been constantly hitting Ukraine with missiles before the bridge, too. Putin is desperate because of battlefield defeats and uses missile terror to try to change the pace of war in his favor,” Kuleba tweeted.

“This nonsense about Putin being ‘provoked’ must stop. He does not need anything to ‘provoke’ him in order to commit heinous crimes. I ask international media to stop shifting the blame on the victim of aggression by suggesting that Putin ‘responds’ or is being ‘provoked,’” the foreign minister stressed.


As reported, on Monday morning, as a result of enemy rocket attacks, explosions rang out in Kyiv, Khmelnytskyi, Lviv, Zhytomyr and Dnipro. In Ternopil and Vinnytsia regions, anti-aircraft defenses were activated, and in Mykolaiv region, two enemy missiles were shot down.

On October 10, several explosions rang out in the Shevchenkivsky district of Kyiv. Casualties have been confirmed.

On the morning of October 8, an explosion occurred and fire broke out on the Crimean bridge connecting Russia and the temporarily occupied Ukrainian Crimea, fuel tanks caught fire and part of the road surface was destroyed.
