    Two power engineers were killed in Zhytomyr and Kharkiv regions while performing work; 73 workers remained underground in Donetsk region due to the shelling of a mine


    Yesterday, to partially cover the electricity deficit, Ukraine additionally attracted emergency assistance from the power systems of Poland, Romania and Slovakia.

    Today, the schedules of hourly consumer outages are applied from 0:00 to 24:00. If the situation changes, the information will be updated.

    The main reason for the restrictions is enemy attacks on energy infrastructure and the negative consequences of these attacks.

    In Donetsk region, enemy shelling damaged an overhead line of a distribution system operator. The substation and the household consumers and a mine connected to it were cut off. At the time, there were 73 workers in the mine, and they were brought to the surface. All consumers were reconnected.

    In Lviv region, a metal ball with a diameter of 15 cm was found on the territory of one of the high-voltage substations – a fragment of a cluster munition from a russian X-101 missile. The State Emergency Service removed the munition from the substation.

    In Chernihiv region, 413 consumers in 6 settlements lost power last night due to shelling.


    In Cherkasy region, equipment at one of the regional power company’s substations was disconnected due to technological reasons. As a result, household and industrial consumers in two districts lost power. All consumers have been reconnected.
