Ukraine restored most of the power and heating system, preparing for another winter with Russian attacks

Ukraine’s Minister for Reconstruction, Development of Municipalities, Territories, and Infrastructure, Oleksandr Kubrakov, said that virtually all of Ukraine’s heat-generating enterprises damaged in Russia’s autumn-winter rocket and drone strikes have been restored. Also, more than 65% of 700 heat supply facilities damaged by the Russians have been restored.

Also, according to Ukraine’s electricity operator Ukrenergo, so far, 90% of the damaged electricity substations have been restored. By next winter, there will be more of them than before the war.

At the same time, we are working on providing backup capacities in case of an emergency,” he wrote.

Kubrakov expressed confidence that Ukraine would be 100% technically prepared for the start of the heating season by 1 October, also saying he understands that Russia likely will try to target Ukrain’es energy system the same way it did in 2022, casing temporary blackouts.

He also stated that current works are “extinguishing the fire” but not eliminating its cause, which is Russian aggression and Russian missile attacks.
