Several hundred million dollars will be needed to restore Ukraine’s energy system, damaged by shelling. About it Financial Times (FT) said the Minister of Infrastructure of the country Alexander Kubrakov. He did not name the exact amount, but clarified that this money should be allocated in addition to those that are already being spent from the budget.
According to the FT, in Ukraine there is a shortage of transformer units needed to replace those that have been used in the country since Soviet times. Kyiv wants to buy the missing transformers from Lithuania and Poland, and also intends to establish its own production. The publication notes that their release takes from four to eight months.
On November 23, Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky announced that the country had been subjected to massive strikes from Russia. A day later, according to Mr. Zelensky, there were serious problems with electricity supply in almost all regions, and in 15 regions there were interruptions in water supply. Kyiv Mayor Vitali Klitschko urged citizens to leave for private homes.
