    Ministry of Energy of Ukraine, posted 21 August 2023 19:51

    Ukraine’s energy infrastructure is being prepared for efficient operation in winter and the relevant institutions are ready to respond quickly to any emergencies. This was stated by Minister of Energy German Galushchenko at a briefing during his working visit to Lviv region.

    “The power system will be ready for the winter, we have all the necessary resources to get through the heating season without blackouts. However, we cannot rule out the consequences of terrorist attacks by the enemy, which we cannot predict. The enemy’s goal is to achieve a blackout in Ukraine. Last winter we learned a lot about maintaining the power system, but the enemy’s attacks can be modified,” said German Galushchenko.

    According to the Minister, there are no plans to introduce restrictions on the supply of electricity to consumers unless there is new serious damage caused by shelling.

    “If there are power cuts, they will be the result of attacks on our energy system and will be temporary,” the Minister added.
