Ukrenergo has called the damage to the country's infrastructure unprecedented

“The level of damage is unprecedented. <…> It is clear that quite a large part of the facilities is either damaged or destroyed. And we are not talking here about just Ukrenergo substations, we are talking about power plants – thermal, hydroelectric, and combined heat and power plants. <…> The damage is significant, and it will take months, if not years, to fully restore the energy system,” he said on the Rada TV channel.

According to Kudrytskyy, significant damage to power facilities has been recorded so far, in particular, in Mykolayiv and Kharkiv regions, as well as in Kiev-controlled areas of Kherson Region.

The head of the board pointed out that the country could theoretically face a complete power outage, but in practice he does not see such a prospect at the moment.
