    No electricity deficit; a fire broke out at a mine in Donetsk region as a result of shelling.


    There is no electricity shortage. A unit at one of the nuclear power plants was taken out for scheduled maintenance. At the same time, 9 units of thermal power plants are in reserve, which will be used if necessary. Commercial electricity imports and exports are also planned. Domestic generation is sufficient to meet consumer needs.

    The situation is under control. The system is balanced. No blackout schedules are applied.


    A fire broke out in the administrative and amenity complex of a mine in Donetsk region as a result of shelling at night. No one was injured and the mine was reconnected to electricity.

    An overhead power line in Chernihiv region was disconnected as a result of shelling, cutting off power to nearly 100 consumers. All were reconnected within a day.

    The hostilities damaged an underground low-pressure gas pipeline in Sumy region. Gas supply was cut off to 24 customers.


    A fire broke out at a power company’s substation in Odesa region, causing a transformer supplying electricity to residential customers to be cut off. The fire has been extinguished and work is underway to restore power supply.


    The 330 kV line supplying ZNPP remains de-energised.

    The water level in the cooling pond is 15.54 metres. This is sufficient to meet the needs of the plant.


    For the current day, electricity imports are forecast at 1,648 MWh. It is also planned to export up to 12,795 MWh to Poland, Romania, Slovakia, Moldova and Hungary.
