Firewood on the Internet and potbelly stoves in Sadovoe: how Ukrainians will warm themselves this winter

С ongoing shelling of energy infrastructure Ukraine, power engineers warn of possible blackouts, and the deputy head of the OP Kirill Timoshenko said that "critical situation throughout the country" and we need to prepare for the fact that there will be no electricity and water supply, as well as heat supply.

But in fact, in fact, the heating season should have already begun and there is still half of autumn ahead and, in fact, winter. In this regard, they started talking about the fact that the demand for firewood has increased significantly in Ukraine.

Firewood is now on the Internet

In principle, it is theoretically clear how residents of villages and districts, as well as urban private sectors, can use an alternative source of heat. But where to "shove" firewood to residents of high-rise buildings in megacities is a rhetorical question.

Apparently, in the most extreme case, Ukrainians will still have to take advantage of the bitter experience of Mariupol residents, who in the coldest time found themselves in a city cut off from all communications, and warmed themselves and cooked exclusively with the help of impromptu bourgeois stoves in the yards of apartment buildings.

In the meantime, he has earned in Ukraine state online firewood store for the population "Drova". In government сообщилиthat Leshozes have already started accepting online orders from Ukrainians.

"The government is doing everything possible to keep Ukrainians warm this winter. The Prime Minister of Ukraine has set clear goals for the sustainable passage of the autumn-winter period in 2022-2023. To this end, forestries are harvesting firewood for the population. To simplify and make it convenient for Ukrainians to buy firewood, we created the state online store "DrovaE", - said the Minister of Environmental Protection and Natural Resources Ruslan Sagittarius.

To buy firewood you need:

  • Go to resource https://drovae.gov.ua/ and log in through an electronic digital signature or the bank you use.
  • Specify the delivery address for firewood. The system will automatically pull up the nearest forestries and products that can be ordered. Each supplier will offer the range that is available.
  • Decide on the type and volume of wood, choose a function with or without delivery.
  • Pay for the order or wait for a call from the operator to resolve logistics issues.

There is a purchase limit for one individual in 15 cubic meters of firewood for the heating season. Therefore, in order to avoid abuse and bulk purchases in the store, authorization system users.

For those, who I have never dealt with wood heating. The site also explains how determine the volume of firewood and what type of wood better for heating.

"To provide firewood to the most vulnerable categories of citizens in the front-line territories, the Government distributed 563 million hryvnias among the regional military administrations. They will be used to purchase and deliver firewood for the population of Dnepropetrovsk, Donetsk, Zaporozhye, Nikolaev, Sumy, Kharkiv, Kherson, Chernihiv regions," Said the Minister.

Ruslan Strilets noted that no one lets Ukrainian forests under the "axe", since additional firewood harvesting in 2022 is carried out at the expense of the unused timber harvesting limit for previous years.

On the one hand, it is not entirely clear where the unused limit came from, and on the other hand, in any case, environmentalists, who before that repeatedly and not unreasonably sounded the alarm regarding the deforestation of Ukrainian forests, they will definitely take care of this issue.

As, by the way, and their European counterparts. We recently reported that amid the energy crisis, many EU governments are loosening deforestation rules and encouraging wood-fired heating in homes — which environmentalists say is spells disaster for Europe's already vulnerable forests.

Sadovoy knew something

But the mayor of Lviv Andrey Sadovoy, as they say, he prepared the sledge in the summer, saying that the city buys potbelly stoves and stocks up with firewood just in case.

"No one has canceled firewood yet. They always save in difficult times. The same about coal. We buy a lot of bourgeois stoves, because they are the only thing that can remain if the other does not work", - said Sadovoy, noting that it was the potbelly stoves that helped the citizens of Georgia survive the heating period during the Russian occupation.
