President Zelensky: Energy sector is a permanent item on our agenda

The situation on the front lines in the Donetsk region and the problem of stabilizing the energy system in Ukraine were considered at a meeting of the Staff of the Supreme Commander-in-Chief.

Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky said this in a nightly video address on Wednesday, December 7, Ukrinform reports.

“I’ve held a meeting of the Staff today. Commanders' reports, analysis of the situation in specific directions. First of all, regarding the Donetsk region, Bakhmut districts and other hottest spots. A very fierce confrontation is ongoing there, every meter counts. I thank all our guys who destroy the enemy right there - every day, every night, every hour. Of course, due attention was paid to the Luhansk region and Kharkiv region at the Staff’s meeting, there were reports on the situation in general and on the borders,” Zelensky said.

Another issue that was considered during the meeting of the Staff and at the government level was the issue of stabilizing the energy system and protecting power plants.

“Energy sector is a permanent item on our agenda - both at the Staff and government levels. I’ve also held a meeting on the stabilization of the energy system and the protection of our power plants,” Zelensky said.

According to him, work is ongoing to increase the generation and supply of electricity, however, it is now impossible to restore 100% of the energy system as it was before the beginning of the Russian energy terror. That is why shutdown schedules remain in most cities and districts.

“As of this evening, the biggest number of shutdowns is in Kyiv and the region, Lviv region, Zhytomyr region, Khmelnytskyi region, Poltava region, Vinnytsia region and Zakarpattia. And I thank all our energy workers, repairmen, businesses, utility workers and local authorities who are doing everything they can to make things easier for people,” Zelensky said.
