    Ministry of Energy of Ukraine, posted 06 June 2023 11:42

    The blowing up of Kakhovka HPP did not directly affect the situation in the country’s power system. There is no threat to the stability of the electricity supply. The generated electricity is sufficient to meet the needs of consumers.

    Situation at ZNPP. Despite the gradual decrease in the water level, there is no direct threat to the occupied plant. Energoatom experts are constantly monitoring the situation.

    Due to the dam blowing up, there is a risk of flooding of power facilities in Kherson region, in particular the Kherson CHPP. Nearly 12,000 consumers in Ostriv district of the city have already lost power due to flooding, and there may be problems with water supply. Preventive anti-crisis measures are being put in place.

    Also at night, the enemy launched a massive missile attack across the country. Power lines in Kyiv and Kyiv region have been damaged by falling rocket fragments, and repairs are underway.

    In addition, the enemy continues to terrorise the frontline and border areas. Shelling has left some settlements in Donetsk region without electricity, and new damage has been reported to power grids in the border area of Sumy region, bringing the total number of de-energised customers there to almost 11,000.

    Some consumers in Zaporizhzhia, Kharkiv, Kherson and Chernihiv regions are also without power due to earlier shelling.

    Repair crews are working where the security situation allows.

    Commercial electricity imports totalled 1,031 MWh last day. Exports to Poland totalled 1,800 MWh.

    The volume of gas in Ukrainian storage facilities increased by more than 24 million cubic metres over the day. Natural gas reserves amount to almost 9.7 billion cubic metres.
