    Consequences of shelling

    Following the enemy’s attacks on gas distribution stations in Kharkiv region on the night of 12 October, gas supply to 13,500 households was cut off. Emergency repairs are underway.

    Power generation

    The electricity generated by Ukrainian power plants is fully sufficient to meet the needs of consumers.

    Power engineers continue to prepare the power system for the heating season, which will take place in the face of russian attacks. A large-scale repair campaign is underway at thermal, hydro and nuclear generation facilities.

    Situation in the frontline regions

    The occupiers continue to terrorise the frontline and border areas. As a result of the shelling, 52 settlements in Donetsk region and 4 settlements in Mykolaiv region lost power. Some consumers in Zaporizhzhia, Sumy, Kharkiv, Kherson and Chernihiv regions are also without power.

    Repair crews are working where the security situation allows.

    In total, over 20,000 consumers have been reconnected over the past day. Most of them are customers in Donetsk and Kharkiv regions.
