UK allocated over $180 million to strengthen Ukraine's energy system

Apr 19, 2024

The United Kingdom has allocated almost 150 million pounds (over $180 million) to strengthen Ukraine's energy sector.

This was stated by the British Permanent Representative to the OSCE, Neil Holland, according to the press service of the British government.

"The UK is intensifying efforts to support Ukraine and has committed nearly £150m to bolster Ukraine’s energy sector. We are continuing to work with G7+ partners to help Ukraine repair, protect, and build back its energy system," he said.

According to Holland, the United Kingdom intends to provide Ukraine with the support it needs to defend itself and push Russia out of Ukraine's sovereign territory.

"This is the only path to a just and lasting peace," he emphasized.

It should be noted that in recent months, the Russian aggressor has intensified attacks on the territory of Ukraine, using kamikaze drones and missiles. First of all, the country's energy infrastructure has been targeted by terrorists, which has led to power outages in a number of regions.

For example, on April 11, an enemy attack completely destroyed the Trypillia thermal power plant located in the Kyiv region, which was the largest supplier of electricity to Kyiv, Cherkasy, and Zhytomyr regions.
