    During the year since the beginning of the full-scale invasion, 450 cargoes of humanitarian aid with energy equipment have been delivered to Ukraine under the coordination of the Ministry of Energy. The total weight of the aid reached more than 5,650 tonnes.

    "The equipment received by Ukraine includes more than 1,700 generators, about a thousand transformers, mobile gas boilers, special equipment, high-voltage equipment for repairing power lines, a mobile cable laboratory, and many materials. Thanks to this help, we were able to restore the operation of a large number of energy infrastructure facilities that were shelled by russians with missiles, drones, and artillery. This is an extremely important contribution to Ukraine's energy stability and, ultimately, to our future victory," said Minister of Energy of Ukraine German Galushchenko.

    Humanitarian aid to Ukraine has already been provided by 30 countries from different continents. These are Austria, the United Kingdom, Poland, Sweden, Germany, Italy, France, Latvia, Belgium, Denmark, Spain, Finland, Lithuania, Estonia, Ireland, Norway, North Macedonia, Switzerland, Hungary, Moldova, Slovakia, Croatia, Slovenia, the Netherlands, the Czech Republic, as well as Azerbaijan, Japan, the Republic of Korea, Canada and the United States of America.

    Energy Community experts have repeatedly noted the high level of work of the Energy Humanitarian Headquarters of the Ministry of Energy, which receives and distributes equipment to Ukrainian energy companies, as well as the transparency and efficiency of its work.

    "Using the equipment from our partners, we have returned light and heat to millions of Ukrainians, survived this extremely difficult winter, and are already preparing for the next heating season. The International Coalition makes a contribution not only to national but also to global energy security," emphasized German Galushchenko.
