    Ukraine has won the battle with russia on the energy front, having maintained the energy system throughout the winter, which was marked by massive russian attacks on Ukrainian energy infrastructure. This was emphasized by the Minister of Energy of Ukraine German Galushchenko during his speech at the Partnership for Transatlantic Energy and Climate Cooperation (P-TECC) forum in Zagreb.

    "As of today, our energy system has a surplus. This gives us a feeling that we have really won this energy battle," said German Galushchenko.

    At the same time, the Minister noted that Ukraine was already preparing for the upcoming challenges, including the next heating season. One of the key short-term tasks in this area is the decentralization of power generation.

    "Gas turbines that are to be installed in different regions of the country where there is a shortage of generating capacity will help us achieve this goal. We are already working on this issue with our American partners," he said.

    Another mechanism for achieving the decentralization goals will be the development of renewable energy sources, such as solar and wind generation. It is also planned to modernize the electricity transmission system damaged by russian attacks. The rebuilding of the networks will primarily involve their modernization and increased protection in the face of military challenges.

    German Galushchenko emphasized that in the medium term Ukraine would also develop carbon-free nuclear generation, which played a key role in this heating season.
