As a result of missile strikes on November 23, all nuclear, most thermal and hydroelectric power stations were de-energized, which led to a power outage for most consumers in Ukraine. This was reported on Facebook of the Ministry of Energy.
"Today's rocket attack led to a temporary blackout of all nuclear, most thermal and hydroelectric power plants. Power transmission facilities were also hit", - the message said.
As a result, most consumers across the country are de-energized, emergency power outages occur, the ministry indicated. Lack of electricity can affect the availability of heat and water supply.
As assured in the Ministry of Energy, power engineers are already working and doing everything possible to restore power supply as soon as possible, but they warned that, given the scale of the destruction, it would take some time.
"But russia will not be able to intimidate the Ukrainians. They are not afraid of the cold, the dark or the terrorists. We are defeating them by joint efforts, each in his/her own workplace. Trust the power engineers, trust the AFU!", - the Ministry stressed.
Let us recall that because of the shelling of Ukraine on November 23, the power units of three nuclear power plants were automatically turned off.
