The Government has allocated UAH 50 million for priority repairs to restore infrastructure in Sumy region, as well as UAH 100 million for Poltava region to restore the destroyed heating system in Kremenchuk. Also, at the meeting of the Government it was decided to transfer more than 480 cubic meters of firewood from Ukrzaliznytsia to the Kharkiv Regional Military Administration and 600 mobile metal stoves for Donetsk region. This was announced by Prime Minister Denys Shmyhal.
According to the Head of Government, all thermal and hydroelectric power plants in the country are damaged, 40% of high-voltage network facilities are damaged to varying degrees. Therefore, power supply restrictions are still significant in most regions.
“As of the morning of December 9, backup schemes allowed to supply power to consumers in Odesa region, which suffered during the eighth missile attack. Heat generation facilities in Odesa and Kherson regions were partially put into operation, which allowed, in particular, to launch heating systems. But the restriction of consumption remains considerable due to significant damage,” said Denys Shmyhal.
The situation is difficult in Kyiv region, where the enemy struck at generation facilities, which is why there is a more significant deficit on the left bank of the region. But the most difficult situation is in Donetsk and Kharkiv regions, where the enemy attacks generation facilities and distribution networks with artillery almost every day.
“The situation is complicated by weather conditions that slow down not only the repairs, but also the work of demining teams,” noted Denys Shmyhal.
