NCER says just 1.6% of energy objects damaged in Russian attacks renovated so far

Just 1.6% of the Ukrainian energy objects affected by Russian attacks have been renovated.

The relevant statement was made by Kostiantyn Ushchapovskyi, the Head of the Ukrainian National Commission for Energy, Housing and Utility Services Regulation (NCER), an Ukrinform correspondent reports, referring to the Verkhovna Rada Committee on Energy, Housing and Utility Services.

“Unfortunately, the figures that we have today regarding the completion of emergency and renovation works, as of July 1, 2023, do not allow us to think positively about passing through the heating winter period smoothly,” Ushchapovskyi noted.

In his words, the power grids of Ukrenergo National Power Company suffered losses worth UAH 9.6 billion. However, it is just UAH 681 million worth of renovation works that have been completed.

A reminder that last autumn and winter Russians were actively attacking Ukraine’s energy infrastructure. The Ukrainian Energy Ministry had to introduce emergency power outages for household consumers. Despite the challenging winter period, the enemy’s plan to cause a complete blackout in Ukraine failed.
