    Ministry of Energy of Ukraine, posted 04 May 2023 10:59

    The occupiers continue to destroy Ukraine's civilian energy infrastructure by attacking power generation facilities and grids.

    At night, a power generation facility in Donetsk region was shelled again, forcing power engineers to partially suspend its operation.

    In addition, heavy shelling damaged overhead power lines in the region, cutting off power to more than 100,000 consumers, including coal mines.

    As of this morning, household consumers have been reconnected, while two mines in Toretsk remain without electricity.

    Some customers in Sumy, Kharkiv, Zaporizhzhia, and Kherson regions remain without power due to the hostilities.

    At the same time, power engineers have restored electricity supply to more than 32,000 consumers over the past day.

    Unfortunately, the restoration work is being carried out at great risk to the lives and health of the energy workers. Over the past day, crews in Kherson and Sumy regions have come under fire. Three employees of JSC Khersonoblenergo were killed. Fortunately, power engineers in Sumy region were not injured.

    In Kharkiv region, a group of power engineers working to restore electricity networks hit an enemy mine. The employees of Kharkivoblenergo were not injured. However, there were casualties among the deminers.

    In total, 119 employees of energy companies have been killed and more than 300 injured since the beginning of the full-scale russian aggression.
