    Following the repairs, 5 units of generating equipment were put back into operation.

    The power system is balanced.

    Consequences of shelling

    Due to shelling, a 330 kV overhead line in Donetsk region was disconnected without any power outages.

    State of the grid

    Due to the deteriorating weather conditions, a 150 kV overhead line in Dnipropetrovsk region was disconnected, which resulted in power outages for household consumers and industrial facilities. Consumers have been partially supplied with electricity and work is underway to restore power supply.

    A 150 kV overhead line in Kirovohrad region was also disconnected due to bad weather.

    In Donetsk region, a 110 kV overhead line was cut off, affecting household consumers and the railway. As of the morning, all consumers have been reconnected.
