Around 30% of energy infrastructure in Ukraine has been hit by Russian missiles since Monday, 10 October, Ukraine's Energy Minister Herman Halushchenko said Tuesday.

Details: According to the minister, "for the first time since the beginning of the war," Russia has "dramatically targeted" the energy infrastructure.

Halushchenko said that one of the reasons is that the export of Ukrainian electricity to Europe "helps European countries save on Russian gas and coal.".

Answering a question about whether Ukraine will receive additional energy from Europe, Halushchenko said that this is "one of the options under consideration.".

The minister noted that Ukraine's energy system is "still stable," but called on partners to provide "air defence systems that could really help us protect our infrastructure.".

On 10-11 October, Russia launched massive missile attacks on critical infrastructure facilities, namely the energy sector, in the capital and various oblasts of Ukraine.

The Ministry of Defence of Russia stated that the targets of attacks are not only Ukrainian military, but also civilian energy facilities. »
