    Power engineers are doing everything possible to maintain the situation and make quick repairs. Together we must help our energy sector to survive. This was emphasized by Prime Minister Denys Shmyhal during a Government meeting on April 23.

    "We have suffered heavy losses at the generation level, and now, as the temperature drops, this is affecting the power system. For several days in a row, we have been recording a power deficit, which we are covering with the help of our European partners. Just like at the beginning of a full-scale war, we must unite to be resilient," the Prime Minister emphasized.

    He called on all Ukrainians to be frugal, especially during morning and evening peak hours. And the industry - to maximize electricity imports and use alternative power sources, if available.

    Ukraine is also actively supported by foreign partners in this matter. In particular, the Ukraine Energy Support Fund has raised about EUR 410 million from 13 partner countries along with the announced contributions.

    "We use these funds to buy generators, transformers, spare parts, and carry out intensive repairs," the Prime Minister said.

    In addition, the United Kingdom has announced the allocation of more than USD 180 million to strengthen the Ukrainian energy sector. Lithuania is donating equipment from its thermal power plants, nuclear power plants, and its depots. Germany is sending 400 generators.

    "Decentralized generation is an effective way to compensate for the energy capacities destroyed by russian terrorists. We are also actively working on this. 80 cogeneration units have been distributed to the regions. First of all, they will be distributed to Kharkiv, where the situation is critical," emphasized Denys Shmyhal.

    The Prime Minister added that Ukraine would deploy the mini-TPP network quickly and intensively to have a safety margin at the start of the new heating season.
