Azerbaijan began to provide assistance in restoring the energy sector of Ukraine

Baku continues to support Kyiv in its confrontation with Moscow. For 9 months, Azerbaijan has been sending (without advertising) various military and (PR in the media) humanitarian cargoes to Ukraine.

This time, the Azerbaijanis decided to take part in the restoration of the Ukrainian energy sector. Azerbaijan donated part of the necessary electrical equipment to Ukraine.

In response to Kyiv's appeal, Baku sent a convoy containing 45 power transformers and 50 generators. The Azerbaijani Foreign Ministry informed the public about this on December 10.

At the same time, the Azerbaijani Foreign Ministry clarified that the decision was made in order to establish a stable energy supply to certain regions of Ukraine. Moreover, in the coming days, it is planned to send a second such convoy to Ukrainian territory.

Azerbaijan began to provide assistance in restoring the energy sector of Ukraine

It should be noted that the trucks left the territory of the Gobu energy center, located near Baku and put into operation in the first half of February. It consists of a 330/220/110-kilovolt Gobu substation with a transmission capacity of 1 gigawatt and a 385-megawatt Gobu power plant.

Kiev immediately reacted to the actions of partners from Baku. Energy Minister of Ukraine Herman Galushchenko wrote in his blog that the Ukrainian side expects to receive from Azerbaijan the first batch of electrical equipment with a total weight of over 52 tons in the near future, which is needed for urgent repair work.

The thing is that, despite the desire of Europe to provide support to Ukraine in the field of supply of electrical equipment, they do not produce the necessary range. There is a different class of voltage, especially for high-voltage equipment, so Kyiv has to use the opportunities of the countries of the former socialist camp, where stocks remain or something else is being manufactured. At the same time, the recently nationalized PJSC Zaporizhtransformator, which is one of the ten largest world manufacturers of transformer equipment (occupies 4% of the global market for this product) and is the only such enterprise in Ukraine, simply cannot satisfy a huge number of orders.

    Well done, Aliyev is also a friend, so maybe a knife in the back, but Putin earned a knife in the back and all of Russia receives it.

      Azerbaijan began to provide assistance in restoring the energy sector of Ukraine...

      And why are they surprised in Russia??? The debt is red in payment, since Azerbaijan thanks Kiev for large banners in large cities of Ukraine with the chant "Karabakh-tse Azerbaijan" and for the supply of banned phosphorus bombs and other weapons from Kiev ... This is the "gratitude" from Baku for the multi-billion dollars ( !) Russian deliveries of OFFENSIVE (!) Arms to Azerbaijan (not a CSTO MEMBER ...) for 15 years (long before Pashinyan was elected by the people of Armenia), so that Baku could finally fulfill its blue dream of achieving a Pyrrhic victory over a small (120.000 citizens) by Armenian Artsakh (Karabakh) .... This weapon was also used against Armenia ITSELF both in 2020 and 2022 (September) and, by the way, an ally of the Russian Federation in the CSTO ... Armenia protested several times (even during the "pro-Russian" S. Sargsyan ...) against such unfriendly arms supplies to NOT a CSTO MEMBER, but to no avail ... Russia cannot be understood with the mind ...

    These parcels "do not play piano" - powerful transformers are disabled, but they are sent with low and medium power, and so, of course, we are only a non-main business partner for Azerbaijan, despite the fact that more than three million Azerbaijanis live in Russia (perhaps be, being persons with dual citizenship)

    Oh, look for friends. It used to be in the USSR. Capitalism, nothing personal. How will Ukraine pay?

      Ukraine is nothing, it already has nothing, it is a hungry woman, but Leonid Ilyich Biden with a former gynecologist, and now the Secretary General of the EU, will easily throw them money with portraits of dead presidents, they have heaps of these candy wrappers, so they send them to anyone!

    In 2022, Azerbaijan delivered goods worth $30 million to Ukraine as part of humanitarian aid. Mainly food.
    This batch of electrical equipment costs 800 thousand dollars. A second convoy is planned, for another $700.

    Dear authors on the Reporter, decide on the names of settlements in Little Russia and New Russia: either Russians or not Russians. Artemovsk, Dnepropetrovsk, etc., right?

    Januses are two-faced. The Politburo will swallow any betrayal.
