Belarus starts supplying electricity to Ukraine under emergency assistance

On November 2, Belarus resumed electricity supplies to Ukraine, Ukrinform reports, referring to the website of the Ministry of Energy of Belarus.

"On November 2, at 14.00, Belarus began supplying electricity to the Ukrainian energy system with a capacity of 500 MW under the emergency assistance agreement," the report says.

It is noted that deliveries are carried out at the request of the Ukrainian side.

“Long-term commercial contracts (other than those concluded earlier) are out of the question in this case,” the report says.

As reported, SE NNEGC Energoatom plans to create a power reserve for the 2021/2022 autumn-winter period and allows the reservation of small amounts of electricity from Belarus.

On October 27, 2021, following the auction for the access to the interstate crossings (electricity imports/exports), Energoatom purchased 885 MW of capacity from Belarus for November.

Earlier, the Ministry of Energy stated that it was not considering the issue of commercial electricity imports from Russia and Belarus for the upcoming heating season.
