You can't fix everything quickly.
Ukraine is gradually recovering from massive shelling of its energy infrastructure, but remains happy with problems that cannot be solved in a short time, and for these reasons, emergency blackouts continue.
So, the head of the Rada committee on energy and housing and communal services Andrey Gerus on the air of the telethon, he said that it was impossible to restore all the damaged energy infrastructure facilities in the coming months.
“The equipment that is in the warehouses of our European partners is already on its way to Ukraine, it is quickly transferred. However, during this winter, it is impossible to restore all the damaged energy infrastructure facilities.”Gerus said.
According to him, the Ukrainian energy system is constantly under fire, and in Europe there is not enough equipment that Ukraine needs, and it will take at least 6 months to manufacture it.
Gerus added that Ukraine is repairing facilities on its own, and compensates for the shortage of electricity with successive outages.
Recall that, according to According to Ukrenergo, the deficit in the Ukrainian energy system is now 27%.
Outages lead to disturbances
Ukrainians periodically complain about long and unscheduled blackouts, which are produced in such a way that people do not have the opportunity to live and work normally. In this regard, a video appeared on the network yesterday, in which the people of Kiev blocked the movement of the tram, protesting in this way against the blackouts.
The situation was responded to at all levels. Yes, in DTEK сообщилиthat for these people, after turning on, the light disappeared again, because the automation worked due to an excessive load on the power grid. Electricity was returned to them, and Ukrainians were called to DTEK again after turning on the light do not turn on all electrical appliances at once, as this can lead to a new accident and a repeated shutdown.
Even the president got involved Vladimir Zelensky, statedthat people need to understand for how long and why the lights are turned off.
“It is very important that people understand when and for how long their electricity will be turned off. it responsibility of both the energy companies themselves and local authorities. People have a right to know. And as much as possible now, should be provided predictability of life.

Heating points will not be enough
According to the mayor of Kyiv Vitali Klitschko, in the event of a blackout, based on the population, even 10 heating points will not be enough for the capital.
“More than three million people now live in Kyiv, and in case of an emergency, God forbid, when a complete blackout can take place, for a city of three million, even thousands, even 10 thousand points to keep warm will not be enough»- said Klitschko.
Therefore, according to him, every citizen of Kiev should independently prepare for a possible shutdown and stock up on food, water and warm clothes.
“You can’t move to heating points. You can temporarily come there, get some services, but this is not a panacea. Not only in Kyiv, but also in other regions, the situation is the same. Therefore, let's not talk: we have heating points and that's it - all our problems have been solved"the mayor explained.
