MOSCOW, Nov 24 (Reuters) – The Kremlin denied on Thursday that its attacks on Ukraine’s power grid targeted civilians, but said Kiev could “end the suffering” of its population by meeting Russian demands to resolve the conflict.

Repeated rocket attacks on power infrastructure across Ukraine in recent weeks have forced millions of people without electricity, water or heat for hours or days, just as outside temperatures plunge below freezing.

However, Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov told reporters that “there were no strikes on ‘social’ targets and there are none – special attention is being paid to that.”

“As for targets that are directly or indirectly related to military potential, they are accordingly vulnerable to strikes,” he said.

Peskov was asked how the suffering of the Ukrainian civilian population could be reconciled with the views of President Vladimir Putin. Putin said that Russia does not want to destroy Ukraine or its people.

“The leadership of Ukraine has every opportunity to return the situation to normal, it has every opportunity to resolve the situation in a way to meet the demands of the Russian side and, accordingly, end all possible suffering among the population.”
