Energy Minister Herman Galushchenko took part in the meeting of the G7+ Energy Coordination Group, where he reported that as a result of Russian attacks in Ukraine, all TPPs were damaged.

About this reports website of the Ministry of Energy of Ukraine.

“The situation in the power system remains difficult. All thermal power plants were hit by Russian missiles, 44 high-voltage overhead lines were de-energized. Restoration work is underway to stabilize the power supply. We are working to increase the power of nuclear generation in order to reduce the deficit in the energy system”– said Galushchenko.

At the same time, he emphasized that the latest Russian shelling, in particular, drone attacks on energy infrastructure facilities in the Odesa region, as well as artillery shelling of an energy company in the Kherson region, led not only to the termination of electricity supply to millions of Ukrainians, but also to the destruction of an important energy equipment.

“We are already receiving help from our international partners in the form of materials and necessary equipment. At the same time, every time after new attacks, the needs increase again. Our goal is not only to quickly use the equipment to carry out current restoration work, but also to form a stock of equipment that will help to quickly repair energy facilities after the next shelling.”– emphasized the minister.

The head of the department emphasized the proactive position of the Ministry of Energy in coordination work with international partners, institutions, companies and organizations in attracting assistance to Ukrainian generating companies, operators of distribution and transmission systems, gas transportation system, underground gas storage and gas distribution networks, gas and coal mining enterprises.

At the same time, the meeting participants confirmed their readiness to continue providing support to the Ukrainian energy sector. In particular, the USA plans to deliver a large batch of equipment for Ukrainian energy companies in the near future.

We will remind that most of the generating capacities of the energy system of Ukraine have been restored.

Earlier, YASNO General Director Serhii Kovalenko said that Ukrainians should be prepared for blackouts throughout the winter and at least until the end of March.
