Ukraine's energy system works consistently and provides the required amount of electricity to consumers.

"As for the operation of the energy system, I would like to note that it works consistently and covers the amount of electricity required by consumers," Energy Minister of Ukraine German Galushchenko said at a briefing, an Ukrinform correspondent reports.

He outlined the energy system reserves: 2,500 MW – hydroelectric power plants, hydroelectric pumped storage power plants, and thermal power plants; 900 MW – nuclear power plants.

According to Galushchenko,14 power units out of 15 are currently operating at the NPPs, carrying the base load.
