He noted that everything depends on gas: a sufficient amount of fuel and the operation of the networks will ensure uninterrupted operation.
However, if the nuclear power plant “takes off”, a catastrophe will occur. According to Korolchuk, in an emergency, foreign partners will be able to help Ukrainians, “but at night there will still be a deficit,” reports RIA Novosti.
The expert noted that the current lack of coordination between the structures of the Ukrainian authorities and energy companies will not allow the time remaining until autumn to significantly change the state of Ukraine’s energy sector. Korolchuk believes that future blackouts will no longer be measured in hours, but in days.
In addition, the debt problem also puts pressure on Ukraine’s energy system. That is why the authorities and representatives of state-owned companies are already trying to “argue” future blackouts, as they understand the pessimistic expectations of the Ukrainian society.
