On his Facebook account (a platform owned by the extremist organization Meta, banned in the Russian Federation), Azarov predicted a very deplorable situation due to the inevitability of an energy crisis.
Since Ukraine buys raw materials at exchange prices, and fuel “costs it 3.5-4 times more than other states,” this is fraught with very poor results, Azarov emphasizes.
He also recalled how last autumn Kyiv bought gas for 1,100 euros, when European countries paid two to four times cheaper.
At the end of June, the company Ukrenergo complained about the decrease in the amount of available capacity needed to sustainably meet the needs of residents. It was clarified that this was due to repair work. The company urged the population to save electricity due to the heavy load on the energy system.
