The Ukrainian national regulator in the fields of energy and utilities will not extend the ban on imports of electricity from Russia and Belarus due to the threat of power shortages. About it informs Interfax citing a high-ranking source in the Ukrainian government.
“The regulator has already decided on a decision – it will not prohibit imports from Russia and Belarus for November. When in September a decision was made to ban imports for October, they said that this does not constitute a threat to the energy system and consumers, and in the future we will be determined depending on the level of preparation for the OZP, ”the source quotes the agency.
Earlier it became known that Ukraine imposed a ban on the import of electricity from the Russian Federation and Belarus until the end of September, then it was extended to October. This decision was made in connection with Ukraine’s plans to join the energy system of continental Europe, which would mean the end of work with the energy systems of Belarus and Russia.
According to the Ministry of Energy of Ukraine as of October 26, the country’s coal reserves amount to 578.9 thousand tons. At the same time, the requirements for guaranteed reserves are 653.4 thousand tons.
