A total of 349 energy infrastructure facilities have been damaged in Ukraine since the Russian full-scale invasion started, including 11 combined heat and power plants (CHPPs) and three thermal power plants (TPPs).
The relevant statement was made by Ukrainian Communities and Territories Development Minister Oleksiy Chernyshov in his online speech during the Local Self-Government Forum in Lviv, an Ukrinform correspondent reports.
“We can see that a large number of Ukraine’s energy infrastructure facilities were damaged. The enemy insidiously attacks these very objects. As of September 20, 2022, a total of 349 energy infrastructure facilities were damaged in Ukraine. In the heat supply sector, 11 CHPPs and three TPPs are among them,” Chernyshov told.
In his words, 52% of the total objects damaged have already been repaired.
A reminder that Ukrainian Prime Minister Denys Shmyhal instructed Ukrainian Energy Minister German Galushchenko and Ukrainian Communities and Territories Development Minister Oleksiy Chernyshov to establish a headquarters in cooperation with Naftogaz of Ukraine NJSC and Ukrenergo National Power Company in order to mitigate the effects of military attacks on energy and municipal infrastructure.
