The European Union will allocate aid to Ukraine for the restoration of energy networks destroyed by Russia and will support the decentralization of the Ukrainian energy sector. This assistance will include both financial support and the provision of equipment for the repair and decentralization of Ukraine's energy system. This announcement was made by European Commission President Ursula von der Leyen at the Ukraine Recovery Conference in Berlin, reported Ukrinform.

"Our support includes material aid, considering that Russia systematically attacks Ukraine's energy networks. We have already mobilized €500 million for urgent repairs. We are providing an additional 1,000 energy generators for immediate power production, and packages of solar panels will soon arrive in Ukraine," emphasized von der Leyen.

According to the President of the European Commission, thousands of generators and solar panels will help decentralize Ukraine's energy system, thus enhancing its resilience against Russian attacks.

Additionally, Ursula von der Leyen announced that by the end of this month, Ukraine will receive another €1.9 billion. This is the EU's response to the successful implementation of reforms and investment strategies that Ukraine is pursuing even amidst the war.

The President of the European Commission also confirmed that Ukraine has completed all necessary steps to begin EU accession negotiations by the end of June. She noted that Ukraine deserves for the EU member states to start the relevant talks with it. "Ukraine has fulfilled all the steps we outlined. Therefore, we believe that the EU should start accession negotiations with Ukraine by the end of this month," von der Leyen said in Berlin.

It is worth noting that The Gaze reported Estonia will provide Ukraine with a 200 MW power unit, capable of supplying electricity to 150,000 Ukrainian residents.
