    Restoring utility and energy infrastructure damaged by russia, primarily in the de-occupied territories, is one of the key directions of the Government's preparation for the heating season. This was accentuated by Prime Minister Denys Shmyhal during the session of the Cabinet of Ministers on October 4.

    "Ukrainian energy and utility workers work effectively day by day to ensure that we have light and heat in our homes. Huge thanks to the heroes of the energy front for the critical work they perform for the country," said Denys Shmyhal.

    The Head of the Government told, over UAH 4 billion from the state budget was directed to the rapid recovery of regions affected by the war: "Mostly Kharkiv region, Kyiv region, Chernihiv region, Sumy region. Activities have been completed on almost two thousand objects."

    Besides, according to the Prime Minister, the Government headquarters is operating to coordinate the work to restore the damaged infrastructure.

    Moreover, the Government has embarked on preparing to provide a crisis response. Denys Shmyhal has emphasized that after seven months of full-scale war, all of us are well aware of the fact we are dealing with a terrorist state: "Therefore, we must be prepared for terrorist attacks by russia against our critical infrastructure. First of all, we are talking about missile attacks, but this is far from the only risk."

    As the Head of Government told, in particular, it concerns the possibility of a complete cessation of gas transit via the territory of Ukraine to Europe. If such a situation occurs, we have worked out a plan to ensure the most efficient and cost-conscious use of the available gas resource.

    "That is why the average temperature in the homes of Ukrainians this winter may be lower than in previous years. Most of the European countries are currently introducing such a policy. We live and work under the conditions of the war, and each of us must understand these challenges," noted Denys Shmyhal.
