The Minister of Foreign Affairs of Ukraine, Dmytro Kuleba, in his speech to the heads of foreign affairs of the G7, partner countries and the management of European financial institutions in Bucharest, spoke about possible ways to overcome the shortage of electricity in Ukraine. This was reported by the press service of the Ukrainian Ministry.
"The first option is to buy electricity in the EU. But the prices on the EU market are much higher than in Ukraine, so additional financial support will be needed," the minister said.
According to him, the second method involves providing Ukraine with the necessary energy equipment, transformers and generators that will help compensate for the damaged energy infrastructure.
In this context, Kuleba thanked the USA for providing Ukraine with 53 million dollars for the urgent purchase of energy equipment.
The minister separately noted that since October 10, Russia launched more than 600 missiles into the territory of Ukraine and attacked critical infrastructure facilities.
He emphasized that Russia will continue its missile terror against Ukraine.
"It is critical to provide Ukraine with the necessary equipment to restore electrical power. But it is equally important to continue to provide assistance to protect this equipment from repeated attacks, in particular, by supplying Ukraine with anti-missile and anti-aircraft defense systems," Kuleba concluded.
