Schmihal said the situation in the energy sector remains difficult but is under control
Ukraine has enough reserves of coal and natural gas to last through the remaining winter months despite repeated Russian attacks on its energy system, the country’s Prime Minister Denis Shmyhal said.
Schmihal said the situation in the energy sector remains difficult but is under control after a months-long Russian campaign of drone and missile attacks on critical infrastructure that destroyed about 40 percent of the country’s energy system.
“At the moment all of Russia’s attempts to plunge Ukraine into darkness have failed,” Schmihal told a government meeting, as reported by Reuters.
“We have enough reserves to continue and complete the period when heating is required. About 11 billion cubic meters of gas are stored in gas storages and almost 1.2 million tons of coal are in storage,” he pointed out.
