It has become known what damage Russia has inflicted on the Ukrainian energy system: Galushchenko's statement
The terrorist country Russia has damaged Ukraine's energy system by about $11bn. In total, the Russian Federation hit energy facilities 271 times.
This was told by the Minister of energy Herman Galushchenko. "About $ 11 billion, but this is not the final figure. It will be more. It's definitely a billion. On energy, they used everything they had - Kalibers, Kh-22, Iskanders, drones of all modifications, artillery, rocket artillery, bombs," - said the head of the Ministry.
Galushchenko noted: taking into account the fact that the work of the Ukrainian air defense system closer to winter became much better and "there were days when maximum 10% of the shot hit, you can imagine the scale".
Oleksandr Kharchenko, director of the Center for Energy Research, said that Russia is likely to resume attacks on energy facilities in the coming winter. There will probably be current blackouts, but the situation may be better than last winter.
According to the expert, preparation for the next winter is very special and complicated. After all, based on the results of the previous season, the Russians damaged about 50% of generation and more than 40% of high-voltage networks.
OBOZREVATEL reported earlier that August will be a difficult month for the energy system of Ukraine. However, power engineers do not plan to use blackout schedules. However, this does not negate the need for Ukrainians to prepare in advance everything necessary for a possible sudden blackout, as a massive shelling of the energy system by Russia could happen at any moment.
