KIEV, June 27. /TASS/. Ukraine’s Energy and Coal Industry Minister Igor Nasalik said the country’s energy grid does not have power shortage.
"It is not minus 2000 GW (as it was predicted at the beginning of summer), but plus 2200 that we have now. We have not launched oil-gas units and we do not need the annual aid from the Russian Federation," he wrote on his Facebook page.
On Friday, Ukraine’s Deputy Energy Minister Alexander Svetelik urged electricity saving in the country.
"The situation is complicated. Consumption is growing, especially in daytime hours due to the rise in temperature. We urge population, enterprises to reduce consumption in July-August as much as possible in order to prevent blackouts and the need to receive aid (from Russia), as well as to store coal reserves ahead of the autumn-winter season," he said.
Simultaneously, the Ukrainian media quoted a representative of the Ministry and reported that the country has allegedly already started to receive 600 MW of electric power from Russia as part of an agreement on technical assistance due to a shortage that emerged in the national power system.
