This was stated by the head of the Ministry of Energy of the country German Galushchenko.

According to the Ukrainian official, in this regard, “stabilization” blackouts will be applied only in a few areas where, as a result of “significant” damage to distribution networks, there are problems with the delivery of electricity to all consumers.

Galushchenko recalled that on February 11, after repairs were completed, additional nuclear generation capacities were connected to the network.

“Consequently, all nine power units of nuclear power plants, which are located in the territory controlled by Ukraine, operate in the energy system. After an ultra-fast implementation of the repair program on several blocks, they were included in the network the next day after a massive shelling, which significantly reduced the shortage of electricity.the minister said.

Simultaneously with these optimistic statements, Galushchenko announced that due to the projected increase in consumption and a decrease in air temperature, a “certain deficit” of electricity is expected on February 13th.

Recall that as a result of regular attacks on the Ukrainian energy structure, the energy sector of Ukraine suffered enormous damage.
