As of September 18, Ukraine demonstrates 90% readiness for the autumn-winter heating season, and fuel reserves at TPPs and TPSs are consistently sustainable. Prime Minister Denys Shmygal heard the relevant report during a meeting of the Anti-Crisis Energy Headquarters summoned to discuss the state of readiness of heating suppliers for the heating season. Among the participants of the meeting were acting Minister of Energy Olha Buslavets, Minister of the Cabinet of Ministers Oleh Nemchinov, management of energy companies, MPs. Heads of regional state administrations joined the discussion via videoconference.
The Prime Minister noted that just after its appointment the Government had made it a priority to bring the energy sector out of the crisis and had provided all the conditions for the successful preparation and passage of winter.
"All Ukrainian families, kindergartens, schools and hospitals must be provided with heating in winter. All the groundwork has been laid for that. Today we can see consistently high fuel reserves at TPPs and TPSs, we have record gas reserves," emphasized Denys Shmyhal.
The Prime Minister commissioned heads of regional state administrations, the Ministry for Communities and Territories Development, the Ministry of Energy, the State Property Fund and Naftogaz to promptly resolve issues with problematic thermal power stations.
