Ukraine’s Power Deficit Remains at 30%, PM Says

Ukraine’s Power Deficit Remains at 30%, PM Says

Electricity production in Ukraine covers 70% of consumption needs, Prime Minister Denys Shmyhal said on Tuesday.

Shmyhal said that all regions of Ukraine, except the Kherson region, had been connected to the power system.

He added that Ukraine enters winter with 14 billion cubic meters of gas in storage and 1.3 million tons of coal in warehouses.

He added that this was enough of a resource “to get through the winter period stable.”

Earlier the WHO’s regional director for Europe, Dr. Hans Kluge, said that this winter would be life-threatening for millions of people in Ukraine.

Russia has been continuously striking Ukraine’s energy grids, robbing cities of power and some of the water and public transport, too, compounding the hardship of winter for millions.
