Russia could be preparing a "large offensive" in the new year as Russia looks "to conquer all of Ukraine," said Ukraine’s foreign minister, Dmytro Kuleba, speaking from Kyiv on Tuesday, APA reports.

He warned the Russian army could launch a massive offensive come January as the bloodthirsty leader looks to "leave millions without power."

Mr. Kuleba said: "I think the Russian capability to conduct an offensive, maybe a large offensive, may be restored somewhere by the end of January, February. That’s what they’re trying to do. And we, of course, do everything possible to prevent it from happening.

He added: "No one should be fooled. Russia has not changed its ultimatums and still wants to conquer all of Ukraine. What they want right now is not peace but a pause in aggression to continue it later. We will not play this game.

"Putin hopes that without power, water and heating, Ukrainians will stop resisting and accept Russian ultimatums, but this is a grave miscalculation. Russian missile terror will not break Ukraine down."
