Resumption of power supply in Ukraine may be delayed: "Ukrenergo" told who will be affected
Restoring power supply in some regions after another large-scale Russian missile attack may take longer than in others. The reason for this is significant damage. The exact timeframe for restoring power will be announced later in the day on March 9.
Volodymyr Kudrytskyi, Chairman of the Board of National Power Company "Ukrenergo", stated about it. He noted that in the same regions where the damage was not so extensive, the restoration would take less time.
"We are already working to restore power supply to all our regions. Some of them will be able to do it quickly enough, while others will take more time because the damage is very significant. The final assessment of the damage is ongoing. We will be able to provide more precise timeframes for restoration by the end of the day. We will work non-stop 24/7 to ensure that 100% of consumers receive reliable power supply as soon as possible," he said in a statement.
At the same time, Kudrytskyi noted: "Russia failed to disable the Ukrainian power system. However, due to the damage caused in some regions, it became necessary to impose power supply restrictions.
What Russia has damaged
According to the Chairman of the Board of "Ukrenergo", Russia has damaged Ukraine's energy infrastructure. In particular

Earlier, "Ukrenergo" reported that as of the morning of March 9, electricity supply restrictions were in place in three regions of Ukraine. These are:
