    Despite the existing power outages and the difficult situation, citizens will have access to medical, social and public services. This was emphasised by Prime Minister Denys Shmyhal at a Government session on 17 May.

    According to him, more than 11,000 generators are now available in Ukrainian medical institutions. The availability of at least 1 generator in hospitals with inpatient departments is a condition for contracting with the National Health Service.

    In addition, as part of a joint project with the World Bank, the Government is installing solar stations with batteries that accumulate electricity in medical facilities. Currently, more than 60 hospitals have such stations.

    “Recently, medical facilities in 20 regions of Ukraine received 300 energy storage systems. In total, by 2024, medical facilities in Ukraine will receive 2,000 such systems,” said Denys Shmyhal.

    According to Denys Shmyhal, the state also supports social protection institutions. Social service centres have more than 600 generators. Boarding schools have 780 generators. Administrative service centres have 545 generators, and 109 centres are equipped with solar panels.

    “This work needs to be not only continued, but accelerated and expanded. Therefore, the task for each ministry and minister is to ensure the energy autonomy of all designated institutions in your area of responsibility. This applies to both electricity and heating,” the Prime Minister stressed.
