The UK government will provide over £150 million to support Ukraine's energy sector, as announced by the UK's representative to the OSCE, Neil Holland, on the official government website.

"Britain is intensifying efforts to support Ukraine and has allocated nearly £150 million to strengthen Ukraine's energy sector. We continue to work with G7+ partners to assist Ukraine in repairing, protecting, and restoring its energy system," said Neil Holland.

According to him, in recent months Russia has intensified attacks on critical civilian infrastructure in various Ukrainian cities and regions, resulting in civilian casualties and significant damage.

"As part of its ruthless campaign, Russia - as it has admitted - is deliberately and systematically targeting Ukraine's energy system. The increased frequency of air attacks has forced essential services, including hospitals, to rely on backup power sources, severely complicating humanitarian operations. Millions of people are facing disruptions in electricity, heating, and water supply, exacerbating the humanitarian situation in frontline areas," noted the British official.

Holland emphasized that the UK is committed to providing Ukraine with the necessary support for its self-defence and to push Russia out of Ukraine's sovereign territory.

Since the beginning of March 2024, Russia has launched three mass strikes on Ukraine's energy system, leading to the shutdown of over 7 GW of electricity generation capacity. This resulted in the destruction of several key facilities, including the Dnipro Hydroelectric Station in Zaporizhzhia, Kharkiv TEC-5, and the Zmiivska and Trypilska TPPs owned by "Centrenergo," as well as the Burshtynska and Ladizhynska TPPs owned by DTEK.

Minister of Energy Herman Halushchenko noted that the country will partially compensate for these losses in the summer by leveraging renewable energy sources, primarily solar power. However, Ukrainian citizens should equip themselves with generators, backup batteries, and prepare for any possible scenarios in spring and summer.
