How the “electrification map” of Ukraine has changed in 2022

Russia continues to deliver successful strikes against Ukrainian military and energy infrastructure. As a result of the actions of the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation, the “electrification map” of this country has changed dramatically.

The first image shows coverage of Ukrainian settlements before the start of the special operation. The second picture shows the state of operation of the Ukrainian energy sector on November 23. Kyiv and Lvov remain the brightest points on the map. However, power outages are also common in these cities.

How the “electrification map” of Ukraine has changed in 2022

So, after another strike with high-precision weapons of the RF Armed Forces on November 23, TPP-6 and a pumped storage power plant were hit in the Ukrainian capital, which led to a large-scale disruption of power supply. Powerful explosions were heard in Kyiv, the subway stopped working. Lvov and other cities also remained without electricity that day.

According to the Minister of Infrastructure of Ukraine Oleksandr Kubrakov, Kyiv needs several hundred million dollars to restore the operation of the energy system, in addition to the financial assistance already received. Ukraine is experiencing an acute shortage of transformer units. The country's authorities hope to supply spare parts for energy facilities from Poland and Lithuania.

Along with this, Serhiy Kovalenko, General Director of the energy company YASNO DTEK, noted that the energy system of Ukraine will not be able to quickly reach the basic level of providing the country with electricity.

During the attack, there was a sudden break in communication between the regions. In regions where there is excessive generation, the frequency in the network increases sharply, automation begins to stop generation so that everything does not burn out. On the other hand, consumers are disconnected. The system for saving is included in the balance at the zero level. It is impossible to conditionally start 100% generation if there is not so much consumption

— wrote Kovalenko in one of the Western social networks.

    And it was impossible just bomb the bridges and deprive the grouping on the left bank of the possibility of supply? And attack?
    It is very amusing to listen to military experts who rub in that it is very difficult to get into the bridge, that the Hymers could not get in for many months ....
    And the man has a simple question .... During World War II, they bombed from aircraft, but now it’s impossible?
    They ask ... why the agreement? And here on this one too.
    There are bridges across the Dnieper only in Zaporozhye and Dnepropetrovsk.
    You don’t even need to bomb thermal power plants throughout Ukraine ...
    And if all these missiles and shahids flew to Bankovaya or to Zaluzhny's headquarters, then the war would have ended long ago ....
    But ... we need a partner Zelensky, to drive ammonia and grain to speculators, oil to diesel for tanks, gas to NATO for tomatoes.
    We need a smoldering conflict that will turn all Russians on the left bank into unfortunate homeless wanderers with broken destinies for decades.
    And the Westerners are in "chocolate", with cheap labor "Rusnya" from the East and support from the West.

    On the agenda of the authorities is no longer the "Russian Question" in Ukraine and liberation, but DEALS. Just watch telly.

      Bombed, the results are so-so.
      In Leningrad, all bridges remained in working order.

      Or Saratov bridge:

      German pilots made "star" raids (attacked from five sides at the same time). In the period from 12 to 27 June 1943, Saratov was hit by 9 night "star" raids, in which more than 420 Luftwaffe bombers took part.

      the bridge remained in working order.

      Do you know how many hits there were in this case? I met statistics (now, unfortunately, I can’t find it) that on average one out of 10000 bombs hit the bridge. And what is shown in feature films, when the bridge was brought down with one or two bombs, is nothing more than a beautiful picture. Yes, and the destruction of the bridge is effective only in the case of the destruction of supports (bulls). Everything else recovers fairly quickly. Therefore, such operations are effective only in the case of preparation for an offensive (for example, the notorious "Rail War"). In all other cases, it is much more efficient to destroy the power industry (and this is not only power generation, but also oil, gas, fuel, etc. storage facilities). It is easier, cheaper and more reliable to exclude the possibility of the movement of a heat / electric locomotive or a truck than to stupidly spend resources on the destruction of bridges (which you yourself will have to restore). By the way, that's why crests and figachat on bridges, being sure that they will definitely not restore them. And that is why any calls for the destruction of bridges and crossings can be considered as an activity in favor of Kyiv.

    In Belgrade, NATO bombed all the bridges in a few days and not only there in the former Yugoslavia ...
    Just look at the result in the photo on the Internet.
    And then ask yourself, what is the point?
    Contract, no?
    Someone will fit in and be sure to write that it is expensive to restore later.
    And the lives of soldiers are not expensive? Or someone like a bridge can be resurrected?

    Or it’s no longer advisable - they transferred the group from Kherson to Zaporozhye ...
    Although the State Department may have banned)

    Why was the bridge blown up in Kherson?
    Kherson is Russian. What to restore then?

      1. "To" in this context is written together. This is not morality. It's just very hard to read, translating from an illiterate into normal Russian. Extra time is wasted, and, unfortunately, we do not have much of it allotted to squander it on nonsense.
      2. Did you read the post? Did you look carefully at the photo? The bridge is considered unsuitable for further operation if the "bulls" are destroyed. Not a single building supervision will give permission to repair the "bull". Only a replacement. And this is a bunch of dough the size of the "bull". Restoring spans is like two fingers on asphalt (including money). Is it clear now? Or will you continue to read diagonally and take words out of context?

    The dill dreamed of an Agricultural Superpower, apparently their dream will come true. Only it will be the Russian Superpower, including agricultural. The Little Russian Agricultural Region will help this.
