UK to help repair Ukraine’s damaged energy system
The UK will transfer the first £5 million of the UK’s £10 million commitment to the Energy Community’s Ukraine Energy Support Fund, Foreign Secretary James Cleverly announced.
“Russia’s attacks on vital infrastructure show that Putin is resorting to desperate measures. But even in the face of missile attacks and blackouts, the resolve of the Ukrainian people remains unbroken,” Cleverly said.
According to the official statement, the support will help with essential repairs to critical energy infrastructure following ongoing Russian attacks and reconnect households and key facilities to the power supply.
