Ukrainian Prosecutor-General Andriy Kostin said that continued Russian attacks on critical infrastructure across the war-torn nation amount to genocide, adding that strikes on key facilities targeted "the full Ukrainian nation" and were an effort to force Kiev to surrender.

Speaking to the BBC on Sunday, Kostin said that besides the attacks on the energy grid, 11,000 Ukrainian children had been forcibly deported to Russia.
