Russia attacked a thermal power plant (TPP) in the frontline area. As a result, 6 power engineers were injured and the plant's equipment was seriously damaged. However, the shelling did not affect the overall situation with energy supply and Ukraine is not facing blackout schedules.

DTEK reported on the shelling. They noted that the wounded were promptly provided with first aid and taken to the hospital.

"Russia attacked a thermal power plant near the frontline: six of our colleagues were wounded. The equipment of the thermal power plant was seriously damaged. We are eliminating the consequences of the attack," the statement said.

It is also emphasized that since the beginning of the current heating season, the company's thermal power plants have been shelled by the enemy about 40 times.

Will electricity be cut off?

For its part, Ukrenergo said that no power shortage is expected in the grid. Accordingly, there are no plans to apply schedules of scheduled power outages in Ukraine.

"Electricity generated by power plants of all types is sufficient to ensure power supply to all legal and household consumers. No deficit in the power system is expected," they said.

How to prepare for possible power outages?

However, the possibility of large-scale blackouts cannot be ruled out. For example, a massive Russian missile attack on the morning of February 7 damaged power lines in Kyiv, Kharkiv, and Mykolaiv, as well as cut off power to household consumers and healthcare facilities. Although the power company quickly restored power to all consumers, this was yet another confirmation that one can lose power at any time, and therefore, one should be as prepared as possible, as the blackout may be delayed in case of major damage.

In particular, the Kyiv City State Administration (KCSA) advises to stock up on water and food. So that, water:

  • should be prepared for at least 3 days;
  • both drinking and technical water should be stored.

It is emphasized that one adult needs 3 liters of drinking water per day (including liquid consumed with food). As well as 10-12 liters of technical water for hygiene and cooking.

You should also stock up on food. First of all, food that will not spoil without refrigeration and will not require electricity to cook. It can be:

  • canned meat, fish and vegetables;
  • dried meat and jerky;
  • freeze-dried foods (cereals, instant noodles, and soups that need to be poured with boiling water, or buckwheat that can be poured with water at room temperature);
  • breads, cookies, crackers;
  • dried fruits, nuts;
  • chocolate, candy;
  • energy bars.
