Thanks to the heroic work of our power engineers to restore damaged equipment, lower consumption on weekends, and the absence of severe weather conditions the number of emergency shutdowns has decreased, noted Prime Minister Denys Shmyhal at a session of the Cabinet of Ministers of Ukraine on December 27.
“Today, on December 27, after emergency restoration works, 2 units of thermal power plants were returned to operate in the grid. The process of rehabilitation of infrastructure continues, the number of consumers who have their electricity supply at least partially restored is growing. A well-developed algorithm for the priority of consumers' power supply is in effect. In the first place - critical infrastructure, in the second - military-industrial complex, in the third - important production facilities, in the fourth - housing sector,” stressed the Head of Government.
Denys Shmyhal also pointed to the fact that russia was preparing to resume attacks on the Ukrainian energy system. Therefore, the State and the Government are in daily readiness for new massive attacks.
Meanwhile, the Prime Minister accentuated that if no shelling took place, the New Year holidays would be held without emergency shutdowns.
