“Ukraine has already experienced the 13th major air attack against our energy system. Russian terrorists do not stop trying to destroy our energy system, and deprive us of heat and light. This time, Russia’s main target was high-voltage infrastructure. Air defense forces shot down most of the missiles. However, five high-voltage substations in the central, southern and southwestern regions, were hit” explained the Prime Minister of Ukraine.
Denys Shmyhal added that this week Ukraine managed to agree on increasing aid to the energy system.
“We understand how to survive this winter, but we are already preparing a plan for how to restore Ukrainian power system in the spring and summer. We are not talking about temporary solutions, but about changing approaches, building and developing decentralized generation, high-quality reconstruction and protection of distribution networks,” summarized the Ukrainian Prime Minister.
