Repairing the energy infrastructure will cost Ukraine €300M.
This calculation was announced by the head of the parliamentary committee on European integration, Ivanna Klympush-Tsintsadze. At a meeting with the VP of the European Commission for inter-institutional relations, Marosh Šefčovych, Klympush-Tsintsadze emphasized that with winter’s approach, Ukrainians are feeling the consequences of Russian energy terrorism more widely and acutely. Ukraine needs further substantial support from the EU. The funds are needed for transformers, electrical components and spares, and consumables for the restoration of damaged electrical supply facilities. Also, in the short term, Ukraine will need generators, fuel supplies, and various types of batteries. In the event the situation grows more critical, Ukraine would need to rely on the EU to supply the minimum necessary flow of electricity to the Ukrainian power grid, added Klympush-Tsintsadze.
