Since Wednesday, when Russian terrorists attacked the Ukrainian energy infrastructure with rocket attacks, it has been possible to halve the number of Ukrainian homes in which electricity is cut off to stabilize the system.

President Volodymyr Zelenskyi said this in his traditional evening address on Friday, November 25.  

According to him, as of this evening, blackouts continue in most oblasts and in Kyiv.

In total - more than six million subscribers.

At the same time, almost 12 million subscribers were disconnected on Wednesday evening. 

"The biggest problems now are in the capital, as well as in Kyiv region, Odesa region, Lviv region, Vinnytsia and Dnipropetrovsk region.

Please, in all regions, it is necessary, as before, to consume electricity sparingly.

If you don't have an outage, it doesn't mean that the problems have already been solved.

If there is electricity, it does not mean that you can turn on several powerful electrical appliances at once," the president addressed the Ukrainians. 

Zelensky emphasized that consumption spikes are recorded every evening, which cause an increase in emergency shutdowns. 

"Now, as before, it is necessary to conserve energy," he emphasized. 

It will be recalled that Volodymyr Kudrytskyi, the chairman of the board of NEC "Ukrenergo" stated that the company provides the possibility of importing electricity from Europe to Ukraine in the amount of 500 MW, but for this a special mechanism is needed, which is currently being developed.
