Germany’s foreign minister called Russia’s attacks on civilian infrastructure “an intolerable, inhumane crime.”
Germany will organize a meeting of the heads of foreign affairs of the “Big Seven” countries to agree on measures to support energy supply in Ukraine.
“Next week in Bucharest, as the chairmen of the G7, we will invite other partners at the level of foreign ministers to a meeting to initiate further support for Ukraine’s energy supply,” German Foreign Minister Annalena Berbock said.
She also called Russia’s attacks on civilian infrastructure “an intolerable, inhumane crime.”
“Putin likes to plunge the people of Ukraine into cold and darkness with his missiles. He will never break the people’s desire for freedom and our support,” Berbok emphasized.
Russian attacks on Ukraine’s energy infrastructure
As reported, since the beginning of October, Russia, as a real terrorist state, has been carrying out systematic attacks against the energy infrastructure of Ukraine. Because of these war crimes, as of November 19, about 50% of the country’s energy infrastructure was destroyed.
Already on November 23, Russia launched another massive missile attack on Ukrainian energy, which led to the blackout of many regions. Power outages were also reported in neighboring Moldova. The Ministry of Energy of Ukraine announced that there was a blackout in the entire energy system.
As a result of the shelling, the emergency protection at the Rivne, Yuzhno-Ukraine and Khmelnytsky nuclear power plants was activated, which led to the shutdown of their power units.
Also, as a result of falling into energy facilities, many regions of Ukraine were left without heat and water supply.
As of the evening of November 24, DTEK reported that the situation in the power system will be stabilized in the near future. Electricity supply to critical infrastructure facilities has already been restored, and the gradual connection of household consumers continues. According to the Kyiv City Military Administration, 70% of the capital’s housing stock is in emergency power outage mode.
