"Yesterday, at Polandʼs request, electricity was supplied to Ukraineʼs power system from 12:00 to 15:00. The TPP unit was taken out for short-term repair. Currently, there is no shortage of electricity in the power system, it works in a balanced way," the Ministry of Energy emphasized.

Attacks on the Ukrainian energy industry

The occupiers launched more than 60 drones and almost 90 missiles of various types across Ukraine. Air defense forces shot down 92 targets out of 151. Among other things, the occupiers hit the Dniprovskaya HPP, but there is no threat of a dam breach. Both stations that are part of the Dnipro HPP (HPP-1 and HPP-2) stopped working, while HPP-2 suffered critical damage.

On the night of March 29 , Russia launched a powerful air missile attack on the facilities of the fuel and energy sector of Ukraine.
