About 30% of Ukraine’s energy infrastructure hit by Russian strikes since October 10, 2022
Around 30% of Ukraine’s energy infrastructure has been hit by Russian missiles since October 10, 2022, as Minister of Energy of Ukraine Herman Halushchenko told CNN.
According to him, this was the “first time since the beginning of the war” that Russia had “dramatically targeted” energy infrastructure.
He said one reason is that Ukrainian electricity exports to Europe “help European countries to save on Russian gas and coal,” adding that Ukraine is trying “to reconnect quickly from the other sources.”
The minister said that the Ukrainian energy system “is still stable” but called on partners to provide “air protection systems that really could help us protect our infrastructure.”
“We send this message to our partners: we need to protect the sky,” he said. “Russians are not playing on some games on international laws. They don’t care about any kind of international agreements or conventions.”
