    Power transmission lines damaged by missile strikes in two regions; gas supply restored to all consumers disconnected after shelling in Kharkiv region

    Consequences of the shelling

    A missile strike in Mykolaiv region damaged a power line and cut off power to more than 800 consumers.

    The shelling also damaged two 110 kV power lines in Kharkiv region. Consumers were not disconnected from the power supply.

    Restoration works have been completed in Kharkiv region, where gas supply was cut off as a result of shelling of gas distribution stations. All households have been restored to gas supply.

    Situation in the frontline regions

    Occupants continue to terrorise the frontline and border areas. As a result of shelling, 19 settlements in Donetsk region lost power. Some consumers in Dnipropetrovsk, Zaporizhzhia, Sumy, Kharkiv, Kherson and Chernihiv regions are also without electricity.

    Repair teams are working where the security situation allows.

    In total, power engineers have reconnected 1,500 consumers over the past day. Most of them are customers in Chernihiv region.

    Power generation

    The electricity generated by Ukrainian power plants is 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 regions

    As a result of technological disruptions, consumers in Zaporizhzhia and Odesa regions were cut off from electricity.

    Consequences of the Kakhovka HPP dam blow-up

    In Kherson, 1,500 consumers remain without power due to flooding. Power engineers are working to restore power supply, but repairs are slowed down by shelling.

    Situation at the ZNPP

    The water level in the ZNPP cooling pond remains stable at 15.71 metres. This is sufficient to meet the needs of the plant.


    Commercial electricity imports totalled 195 MWh over the past day. Exports to Slovakia and Moldova totalled 3,826.00 MWh.
