KIEV, August 25. /TASS/. After a three-week-long period of electricity import from Russia Ukraine on August 24 stopped its influx, the electric power company Ukrenergo said on Tuesday.
"The import of electricity from Russia on August 24 at 21:00 Moscow time was zero megawatts (the target value is 50 megawatts)," the Ukrainian company said.
Earlier, Ukrainian Energy Minister Volodymyr Demchyshyn set the task of curtailing the import of electricity from Russia altogether. At the same time he did not rule out import in case of emergencies.
Ukraine on August 6 resumed the import of electricity from Russia under a contract between Ukrinterenergro and InterRAO. The Energy and Coal Industry Ministry said that as the domestic electricity industry was falling short of the generation target electricity had to be borrowed from the Russian energy system, synchronized with the Ukrainian one.
"The import of electricity is being carried out within the framework of the previous agreement, which we retained as a zero one for quite a long time," the Energy and Coal Industry Ministry said then.
