Ukraine suspends exporting electricity after Russian missile strikes

Latest news Ukraine

Ukraine is suspending electricity exports due to Russian missile attacks on energy facilities, the Ministry of Energy of Ukraine reported.

“Due to today’s Russia’s missile attacks, which hit the thermal generation and electrical substations, Ukraine is forced to suspend electricity exports starting from October 11, 2022, in order to stabilize its own energy system,” the Ministry of Energy explained.

Ukraine fulfilled its obligations to its European partners for the export of electricity even after the Zaporizhzhia NPP (currently occupied by Russia) was stopped.

“It was the export of electricity from Ukraine that helped Europe reduce the consumption of Russian energy resources. And that is why Russia is destroying our energy system, killing the very possibility of exporting electricity from Ukraine,” said Energy Minister Herman Galushchenko.
