EU will intensify supply of generators, transformers to Ukraine – von der Leyen.

In a conversation with President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelensky, President of the European Commission Ursula von der Leyen expressed solidarity with the Ukrainian people, who are suffering from Russia’s barbaric attacks on civilian infrastructure objects and the civilian population, and announced the intensification of EU aid to Ukraine.

“I expressed to President Zelenskyy the EU's full solidarity with Ukraine as it suffers at the hands of Putin's deliberate and barbaric bombing of the country's civilian infrastructure. I strongly condemn these attacks. Russia must be held accountable for what constitute war crimes,” reads the statement by European Commission President von der Leyen following her phone call with President Zelensky.

As noted, the EU intensifies its efforts and works with partners to provide the emergency support Ukraine needs to restore and maintain power and heating for the civilian population. Through the EU's Emergency Response Coordination Centre, the Commission is currently preparing the delivery to Ukraine as quickly as possible of the following large donations by Member States and directly from the Commission's rescEU reserve.

In particular, the donations include 200 medium-sized transformers and a large autotransformer from Lithuania, a medium-sized autotransformer from Latvia, 40 heavy generators from the rescEU reserve located in Romania. Each of these generators can provide uninterrupted power to a small to medium sized hospital.

The European Commission is additionally working on a new energy rescEU hub in Poland to allow donations from third parties and help with their delivery to Ukraine in a coordinated fashion, particularly with our G7 partners.

“We have also reached out to relevant companies in various countries to request vital high voltage equipment, including further autotransformers, and are coordinating with partners to transport them rapidly to Ukraine,” von der Leyen stressed.

As reported, since the beginning of the Russian military invasion of Ukraine, the EU has been providing political, economic, humanitarian and military assistance to Ukraine. In particular, at the request of Ukraine, the EU Civil Protection Mechanism was activated, with the help of which the EU countries and partner countries can send Ukraine humanitarian aid and items necessary for the population in winter conditions.

The European Commission uses hubs in the territory of EU countries, which were created as part of the rescEU emergency aid program, for the rapid delivery of equipment to Ukraine that was prepared in advance for use in similar situations.
