"Today I held several fundamentally important meetings. The meeting on the energy sector was attended by everyone who is responsible for the stability of our energy system. It was a long meeting - three hours. […] We have set the current tasks to ensure that this heating season is completed properly. And we have already started preparing for the next season - each of the meeting participants has received their part of the work in this regard. We see risks, we will find a response," Zelensky said.

According to him, the meeting was attended by the heads of energy companies, including Naftogaz, Energoatom, Ukrenergo, Ukrhydroenergo, as well as members of the government, the Office of the President, the head of the energy committee of the Verkhovna Rada, the military and intelligence.

"This winter is over. It was very difficult, and every Ukrainian without exaggeration felt this difficulty. But we still managed to provide Ukraine with energy and heat. Yes, the threat to the energy system remains. But the work for the sake of the energy system is also ongoing," Zelensky said.
