At a meeting on February 7, the Government allocated UAH 30 million from the reserve fund of the State Budget to the Odesa Regional Military Administration for the purchase of fuel for generators. This was announced by Prime Minister Denys Shmyhal.
According to the Head of Government, this will keep critical infrastructure operational until the repairs are completed.
The Prime Minister noted that the situation with electricity supply in Odesa, where an accident occurred last week at a substation damaged by russia, had been partially resolved. Critical infrastructure has been powered. People have heat and water.
“Repairs are ongoing 24/7. Thanks to this, people should have electricity for at least 4-5 hours a day. We are doing everything possible to improve the situation, but let’s be honest, the damage is very serious. So far, more than 80 powerful generators have been delivered to Odesa, and more are still being supplied. An extensive network of Points of Invincibility is deployed in the city and the district,” the Head of Government said.
Denys Shmyhal also added that the Minister of Energy and the head of Ukrenergo were keeping everything under personal control and would continue to report on the progress of repairs. He emphasized that the authorities at all levels were doing everything to ensure that Odesa residents had heat, water and electricity.
