Ukraine currently has enough electricity generated by the country's power plants to meet the needs of its citizens. Rumors in social media about the alleged use of blackout schedules are false. This was reported by the Ministry of Energy of Ukraine.
"In recent days, on the eve of the heating season, information about the alleged use of power outage schedules in Ukraine has been widely disseminated on social media," the ministry said.
At the same time, the ministry denied such reports and emphasized that "no power supply restrictions are expected in any of the country's regions".
"The electricity generated by Ukrainian power plants is still fully sufficient to meet the needs of consumers," the statement said.
As the Ministry of Energy explained, such blackouts are possible "only in the event of massive enemy shelling" and, as a result, damage to power equipment.
Another factor that can lead to blackouts is technological disruptions and bad weather.
"Power engineers are actively preparing the energy system for the heating season," the Ministry of Energy said.
