Ukraine’s energy minister, U.S. CDA talk energy threats

Minister of Energy German Galushchenko during a meeting with the U.S. Chargé d'Affaires ad interim in Ukraine Kristina Kvien discussed the issue of Ukraine's sustainable heating season in the face of energy aggression unleashed by Russia.

That’s according to the government’s press service, Ukrinform reports.

“Galushchenko recalled that the Russian Federation had blocked coal supplies to the country by rail. Ukraine has shifted to other sources of imports as currently, the main coal supply route is by sea,” the report reads.

The parties also discussed the current situation of a significant reduction in the volume of Russian gas transit to Europe via Ukraine.

The minister of energy noted that the main burden throughout the heating season 2021-2022 is borne by the nuclear plants’ operator, NNEGC Energoatom.

Therefore, in this context, the parties discussed cooperation in ensuring reliable and uninterrupted operation of Ukrainian NPPs during the heating season, including technical support and stable replenishment of fuel reserves.

For her part, Kvien assured that the United States remained ready to assist Ukraine in ensuring the stability of energy supplies, in particular, for nuclear energy, and strengthening Ukraine's energy security.
