In Ukraine, more than half of all thermal power plants were disconnected

On the eve of the winter cold, Ukraine is experiencing a shortage of electricity. So, according to the deputy of the Verkhovna Rada from the Batkivshchyna party, the first deputy chairman for budget issues Ivan Krulko, on November 4 more than half of all thermal power plants are not working in the country.

Today, out of 88 power units, 37 are operating, 51 are not working.

- said the People's Deputy on the air of the Nash TV channel.

Krulko noted that the Trypilska TPP, the largest in the Kiev region, stopped working due to a shortage of coal. The MP believes that the authorities should provide the industry and the population with electricity and prevent rolling power outages.

The situation is seriously aggravated by the refusal from November 1 by Russia and Belarus to supply energy carriers to Ukraine. Thus, Inter RAO, as well as specialized Belarusian companies, announced the cancellation of auctions for the sale of electricity to Ukrainians.

Meanwhile, Kiev is actively discussing the possibility of supplying energy resources from "unfriendly" Belarus and Russia. In an environment of rising world prices for coal, as well as Moscow's refusal to supply this fossil fuel, Ukraine is unable to ensure its own energy security. At the same time, the Kiev authorities are not slowing down the intensity of anti-Russian rhetoric, accusing the Kremlin of Europe's energy problems and a desire to control the energy supply of European countries with the help of Nord Stream 2.

    Inter RAO and Belarusian companies have never held or are holding any auctions. Only Ukrainian legislation provides for holding auctions for the supply of energy resources ....

      They held the auction at home, within the framework of Ukrenergo. By the value of the physical capacity of cross-border transmission lines.
      And Old Man put them well.
      They then thought that he would export electricity to them, and he supplied it as part of an emergency assistance agreement. And, if the physical capabilities of his power transmission line are 0,9 GW, then he gave only 0,5 GW. Like, "you had a moratorium and we did not fully prepare the power transmission line." And most importantly, under the emergency assistance contract, the rates are different. Not 1,6 UAH per kW, as they expected, but 5 UAH. And on imports, Old Man won't give them anything. That is, he welded well and acquired the image of a "reliable" friend who, in time (and not cheap), offered his brothers a shoulder ...
      And Russia does not have an emergency assistance agreement with Ukraine. Although the power transmission line capabilities are more than 2 GW.

    cancellation of auctions for the sale of electricity to Ukrainians

    I was also surprised that such auctions were, I had never heard of them. Electricity exchanges have not been created in Russia, at least I have not heard. Therefore, it seems to me that Ukraine is holding what auctions, as with the transit of gas, Russia simply did not show up, or maybe it didn’t even know anything about it and you won’t be surprised at that. And the material was presented in such a way that Inter RAO refused to supply electricity by the Ukrainian. How. That is, not to the state of Ukraine, as it would be more correct, which vilifies Russia at all angles, fights with it for many years, but to the Ukrainians. The brothers seem to have been remembered.

  5. The main thing is that the air will become cleaner and life will be calmer without electricity! And the power plants that the northerners have built - to rip off the face of the nenki!

    There are no “ours” left in Ukraine. Some Bandera! Therefore, the worse it is in Ukraine, the better it is for Russia. But will the education of our government be enough to use it in the interests of Russia? I doubt. Thinking too long!
