Russia changed its tactics and Ukraine’s energy system was on the verge of collapse

29

Ukraine faces a very difficult heating season. Previously, Russia paused after attacks on Ukrainian energy infrastructure, giving the opportunity to carry out restoration work. But now Moscow has changed tactics and the Russian Armed Forces are exerting an unprecedented impact on the already paralyzed energy system of Ukraine. This is stated in the material of the American CNN, providing some details of what is happening.

In 2024, the Russians focused on targeted and regular attacks on thermal power plants, hydroelectric power plants, gas storage facilities and electrical substations. They managed to significantly reduce electricity generation and complicate energy flows (transportation) in Ukraine. All this led to the fact that the Ukrainian energy system was on the verge of collapse.



The new approach differs from last winter, when attacks were less productive (precise) and the damage was easier to repair. Now the Russian Armed Forces are using more advanced weapons and taking advantage of the weakness of the Ukrainian air defense system.

Moreover, Ukrainian officials and top managers of local energy companies admit that it will not be possible to avoid power outages this winter, and the main task now is to minimize their duration. Currently, blackout schedules have been introduced everywhere in Ukraine, and there is no electricity for several hours a day.

If we do not restore damaged stations and improve the capacity of power lines, people will have electricity for less than four hours a day

– explained DTEK Executive Director Dmitry Sakharuk.

He pointed out that there are 120 days left before the start of the next heating season. At the same time, it is necessary to spend $50,5 billion on restoring the damaged energy infrastructure of Ukraine, but this figure will soon increase even more, since the Russian Armed Forces do not stop attacks.

    And with such energy, Ukraine still hopes to defeat Russia, a country over which the Sun practically never sets?!

      Who will be the first to suffer from energy destruction? Military-industrial complex enterprises? No. There are nuclear power plants that are not attacked for obvious reasons. People will be forced to spend the winter in cold apartments without water and sewerage. It is not the energy industry that needs to be destroyed, but logistics. Turn all the roads on the Ukrainian border into rubble so that nothing can be delivered. And then the victorious reports from 404 that they exported as many as several million!!! grain by rail and road to the west. Well, weapons are coming from the west. There will be no roads and the end of the pind proteges....c.

        What are the reasons not to attack nuclear power plants? The reactor is located in a reinforced concrete cocoon (this is not the RBMK reactor at the Chernobyl nuclear power plant) which can withstand a direct blow from either 120 tons of Boeing 737 or FAB500 (this is not a secret). You need to hit the 750 kV generating transformers. These transformers weighing 250 tons were produced in the USSR (now in Russia, in the USA and Europe the current parameters are different, so at least 2 years production time, hundreds of millions in price, and... 30 minutes for Iskander to repeat the lesson) they can only be removed from a stopped state long ago at the Ignalina Nuclear Power Plant. The open switchgear (OSD) where the transformers are located is located 2-3 km from the reactors, so fearlessly hit the outdoor switchgear even with ODAB 9000. After the generation is turned off, the reactors automatically switch to “cold” mode with power from backup sources that are checked daily according to regulations. ZNPP has been in this regime for a year and a half already. But from 11 Iskanders or Daggers aimed at 3 nuclear power plants we get minus 60% of the country’s generation. U. 60%, that’s the thing. The IAEA will of course speak, but it has no right to vote after what its gunners-“observers” are doing at the Zaporizhzhya NPP together with the Ukrofashist. Minus 60% of generation with only 11 missiles....

        They are hostile to everything Russian. Back in 2014, books and portraits of Russian classics were simply thrown out of libraries.

      Eurohutsuls. A wild mixture of Hutsuls and those who led them. But everyone wants to go to Europe. When they already understand that their so-called elite is of no use to us. She is hostile to Russia. Hence, there is no point in preserving their elite villages.

    And last winter they didn’t tell us this, but claimed that they had almost driven the Ukrainian electronic system into the Middle Ages. And here are the new forecasts:

    In Russia, the wear and tear of heating networks is 80%, among the Banderaites it is 90%, the understanding of what the Soviet legacy is among the Banderaites will begin when all the thermal power plants are demolished, and it’s easy to destroy them, hit the pipes, even Geraniums are enough, the reinforced concrete ceiling of Soviet energy shops is designed to be hit by a cruise missile , or better yet, the destruction of key 110 kV transit power transmission line supports will solve the issue of power supply to the entire Banderstat, they blew up power line supports to Crimea for us...

    If they have acted this way since 2023, then today Ukraine’s energy sector is listed at about zero, with all the consequences for the military-industrial complex of Ukraine and other things.. But why did they do such a stretch, who determined the strategy, because a clear strategy that can achieve the objectives of the strategy is not visible to this day. Conclusion: it’s time to change donkeys at the crossing.

    A strike on the enemy’s energy and bridges is carried out on the third day of the war after attacks on air defense and so on. military purposes. Every freshman in military universities knows about this.
