    Ministry of Energy of Ukraine, posted 01 May 2023 10:42

    In the evening of April 30 and on the night of 1 May, the enemy launched another massive attack on Ukraine. No damage to electricity generating facilities was reported.

    However, there was significant damage to distribution networks. As a result, some consumers in Dnipro city and the region lost power. The situation with electricity supply in Kherson region has also become more complicated, with more than 11,000 customers in Kherson and 7,100 in the region without power due to shelling.

    It will take several days to fully repair the damage.

    "The energy infrastructure comes under fire from the occupiers every day in different regions of the country. However, our power engineers are trying to restore electricity to people as soon as possible, often risking their own lives and health," said Minister of Energy of Ukraine German Galushchenko.

    The Minister added that power engineers are working to restore electricity supply around the clock. In particular, over the past day, more than 7,000 customers in Donetsk region and about 3,000 in Sumy region have been supplied with electricity.
