On Feb. 21, Ukrainian Energy Minister Herman Haluschenko visited Kharkiv city and oblast.

  • Kharkiv RMA: Haluschenko handed over about 15 tons of equipment for the restoration of electricity-generating infrastructure in Kharkiv Oblast. According to Kharkiv Governor Oleh Syniehubov, Kharkiv Oblast has received more than 162 tons of equipment from international partners with the help of the Ministry of Energy of Ukraine.
  • Kharkiv Governor: “Together with the Energy Minister, we discussed the protection of energy infrastructure objects from future missile strikes and electricity supply restoration in liberated territories. We have already resumed electricity supply for about 115,000 consumers and plan to restore the power supply for the remaining 35 000 Kharkiv Oblast residents.”
  • In Kharkiv Oblast, almost 35,000 consumers remain without electricity, and 11,000 of them are in the currently occupied territories. Currently, the situation with the electricity supply in Kharkiv Oblast is stable.
  • Kharkiv Mayor Terekhov: the restoration of Kharkiv Heating Networks infrastructure damaged by Russian shelling requires more than UAH1 bln (~$270 million).
  • As of today, 120 power supply facilities in Kharkiv Oblast have been damaged due to Russian shelling.
  • Head of the Ukrainian State Energy Inspection of Supervision Ruslan Slobodian: electricity supply has been restored in more than 800 Kharkiv Oblast settlements. The energy restoration depends on the demining of the territories and is slowed down by the lack of demining equipment. Part of it was destroyed or stolen by the occupiers. Moreover, some of the workers have left the region or joined the Armed Forces.
