The Kremlin dismissed the statement. “There’s no need to look for signs where there are none and cannot be any,” spokesman Dmitry Peskov told reporters on Monday. Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky cautioned on Sunday Russia was “planning new strikes” on his country, urging defence forces and citizens to be prepared to withstand a new week of strain on the power grid amid freezing temperatures. 

Moscow has targeted vital infrastructure in recent weeks, sparking power outages, killing civilians. “We understand that the terrorists are planning new strikes. We know this for a fact,” Zelensky said. “And as long as they have missiles, they, unfortunately, will not calm down.”
