The system operators of some European countries have been handing over equipment to NPC Ukrenergo for the past 8 months, so Ukraine has had and will have reserves to restore the destroyed infrastructure. This was noted by Prime Minister Denys Shmyhal during the Government meeting on November 1.
"We continue to negotiate with our partners an increase in the supply of equipment for infrastructure restoration, as well as mobile power and heat sources. Already 12 countries have agreed to help, while many have provided assistance before," said the Head of Government.
The Prime Minister has said that the state is preparing and stocking up on additional equipment, and Ukrainians should also prepare for a difficult winter, have supplies of technical water, flashlights, power banks, warm clothes, batteries, and other things.
Denys Shmyhal also noted that evacuation plans had been developed for each region. Now the state is urging people to leave only those communities that are located in the immediate vicinity of the frontline: "This is an emergency step that we will use as a last resort. Such a scenario is also possible, but we will do everything we can to prevent it."
