    Under the coordination of the Ministry of Energy, Ukraine has received humanitarian aid from the Latvian donor Latvenergo with a total weight of over 325 tonnes. The cargo includes a 250 MVA transformer and 60 tonnes of transformer oil.

    The Latvian State Fire and Rescue Service assisted with the delivery of the cargo. The transport costs were covered by the European Union.

    “As a result of the massive russian attacks, high-voltage equipment at our energy facilities was damaged. We are using every opportunity to restore the power grid, including used equipment. The assistance provided by our Latvian partners is extremely important, and we thank Latvia for this support,” said Minister of Energy of Ukraine German Galushchenko.

    Since March 2022, Ukraine has received 25 humanitarian shipments of power equipment from Latvia with a total weight of over 512 tonnes. The equipment received includes 70 transformers of various capacities, specialised machinery and other equipment required for repairs.

    In total, Ukraine has received 1,110 cargoes of power equipment weighing about 15,300 tonnes from donors from 36 countries. The geography of the distributed aid covers the entire territory of Ukraine. The bulk of the equipment is being sent to the frontline regions.
