The worst scenario looms.. Ukraine faces darkness and darkness

Despite recent assurances from some Kyiv municipal officials in the past hours, a “worst case scenario” is still looming.

Sergei Kovalenko, CEO of Yasnu, a major energy supplier to the capital, announced on his Facebook page that the country was facing a 32% deficit in electricity supply expected, today, Monday, describing the matter as force majeure.

At the same time, the national energy authorities have alerted of a planned outage in the electricity supply, but have also indicated the possibility of further restrictions in Kyiv and the surrounding area, as well as six other regions of the country.

‘Worst case scenario’

The warnings came on the heels of comments by Vitali Klitschko, the mayor of Kyiv, urging residents to “think about everything”, including worst case scenariowhere the capital loses electricity and water supplies.

“If you have a large family or friends outside of Kyiv, where there is an independent water supply, stove, heating … please consider the possibility of staying there for a certain period of time,” he said in a television interview.

However, Roman Tkachuk, director of security for the Kyiv Municipal Council, confirmed yesterday that the authorities are doing everything in their power to limit the effects of the ongoing Russian attacks on vital infrastructure facilities in the capital and other Ukrainian regions.

The Ukrainian authorities fear that the conditions of civilians and the military alike will deteriorate with the approach of winter, and the temperatures will drop dramatically, amid cuts to power plants, which may worsen the situation in the country, which has entered the ninth month of the conflict with the Russians.

It is noteworthy that Russia has intensified, since last month, its strikes on Ukrainian infrastructure and power stations, in response to the counterattack launched by Kyiv in the east and south against Russian forces, which led to the damage of more than 30% of power stations, and deprived 4.5 million people of electricity.
