The head of Ukrenergo, Volodymyr Kudrytskyi, said that the Russians could not achieve their goals with their missile attack. They planned to shut down the Ukrainian power system.

He announced this on the air of the telethon.

"The energy system is being restored as planned. And we can definitely say that the enemy did not succeed in achieving the goals he set for himself, namely, to completely extinguish our energy system," Kudrytskyi said.

According to him, a significant part of the generation has already been restored, but there is significant damage to the network and power plants. This happened because the Russians launched a series of attacks.

"It all started with kamikaze drones, then a missile attack, and then another attack with S-300 missiles," he added.

  • Russian troops are systematically hitting the energy infrastructure facilities of Ukraine, which have already survived nine attacks. Currently, approximately 40% of the energy infrastructure is seriously damaged. In this connection, there are periodic power outages.
  • The Ukrenergo company reported that the electricity deficit in Ukraine has slightly decreased thanks to the increase in production volumes at power plants.
