    International partners are actively assisting Ukraine in restoring its energy infrastructure. In particular, following the resumption of russian attacks on the energy sector, Ukraine has received 42 shipments of humanitarian aid in the form of energy equipment totalling over 600 tonnes. In particular, the aid was delivered by Germany, Latvia, Norway, the UAE, Ireland, Poland, Finland, Sweden, and the Netherlands.

    “We are very grateful to our partners who are helping us to withstand the fight against the aggressor. Thanks to this support, Ukrainian power engineers are able to restore damaged energy facilities and stabilise the operation of the power system,” said Minister of Energy of Ukraine German Galushchenko.

    The equipment provided to Ukraine includes more than 230 generators, a powerful high-voltage transformer, 880 drums of transformer oil, more than 25 km of wires and cables, gas main pipes, and various electrical equipment.

    The aid is being distributed among companies that have suffered the most from russian attacks, operate in frontline regions or are under constant threat of shelling.

    In total, under the coordination of the Ministry of Energy, since the beginning of the full-scale invasion, Ukrainian power engineers have received 1,138 cargoes of humanitarian energy aid totalling about 15,500 tonnes from 36 countries.
