Ukraine’s Energy System Stabilises After Russian Attacks

Ukrainian Energy System Stabilized After Russian Attacks, Minimal Imports Expected”
The Ukrainian energy system, which sustained severe damage from recent Russian missile attacks, has nearly stabilized, according to Ukraine’s energy ministry on Sunday. Following a series of missile strikes targeting critical infrastructure, the country experienced widespread blackouts, according to Reuters.

Since March 22, Russian forces have been targeting Ukrainian thermal and hydropower stations, as well as main networks, resulting in frequent blackouts across the nation.

Despite the challenges, the energy ministry stated that Ukraine’s energy system is now stable and balanced. Power exports are projected to reach 115 megawatt hours (MWh) on Sunday, while imports are anticipated to total 1,179 MWh.

Notably, Ukraine recorded a record high of 18,649 MWh in electricity imports on March 26.

Volodymyr Kudrytskyi, the chief of national grid company Ukrenergo, previously informed Reuters that the Russian attacks had inflicted significant damage on the power system. However, he expressed confidence that a total collapse was unlikely.
