About 30% of Ukraine’s energy infrastructure hit by Russian strikes since Oct 10 - Halushchenko

Around 30% of energy infrastructure in Ukraine has been hit by Russian missiles since Monday, October 10.

Ukraine's Energy Minister Herman Halushchenko said this on Tuesday, Ukrinform reports with reference to CNN.

“We send this message to our partners: we need to protect the sky,” he said. “Russians they are not playing on some games on international laws. They don’t care about any kind of international agreements or conventions.”

According to Halushchenko, one reason is because Ukrainian electricity exports to Europe “helps European countries to save on Russian gas and coal,” adding that Ukraine is trying “to reconnect quickly from the other sources.”

At the same time, the minister said that the Ukrainian energy system “is still stable,” but called on partners to provide air defense systems “which really could help us to protect our infrastructure.”   

As reported by Ukrinform, on the morning of October 10, Russia launched a massive missile attack on Ukraine’s territory. As a result of the shelling, about 70 objects have been damaged, including 29 critical infrastructure facilities.
