    The Government has taken all necessary measures to prevent or minimize any power failures, said Prime Minister of Ukraine Volodymyr Groysman at an extraordinary Government meeting on Wednesday during which the Cabinet announced the introduction of emergency measures in the energy system of the country.

    "Blackouts will occur only in extreme cases and we will certainly inform about it in advance – it is out of question nowadays. But we will do everything in power", stressed Volodymyr Groysman following adoption by the Government of the ordinance "On introducing temporary emergency measures on the electricity market".

    The Government introduces these extraordinary measures in order to prevent or minimize any outages, explained the Prime Minister.

    "We will spare no effort. I wish all Ukrainian citizens understand me. We will manage the system in such a way as to mitigate any negative consequences for Ukrainian citizens", he emphasized.
