Italian Prime Minister Giogira Meloni asked citizens to turn off electricity and gas for one hour a day.
Italian Prime Minister Giorgia Meloni (45) called on Italians to turn off gas and electricity for one hour every day. This is intended to give citizens a better understanding of what Ukrainians are going through. This is what the Reuters news agency writes.
Because in many places in Ukraine there is currently no electricity. Russian troops have made it their mission to destroy Ukraine’s infrastructure. The Ukrainians can’t keep up with the repair work.
“In order to understand what the Ukrainians are going through, I urge all Italians to turn off all energy sources for one hour a day,” Meloni said in a speech to a gathering of Italian ambassadors in Rome.
The Italian Prime Minister expressed her respect to the Ukrainians. Because they defend “freedom and their love for their country,” says Meloni. She also pledged further arms deliveries to Ukraine. But this has also met with criticism within her Fratelli d’Italia party. The party particularly emphasizes the importance of nationalism and patriotism.
