According to him, this decision was made due to the increase in energy consumption by citizens against the backdrop of a decrease in outdoor temperature. For this reason, Ukrenergo is introducing planned shutdown schedules, which will be handed over to local authorities.

At the same time, the company is developing a more predictable format for limiting electricity consumption in the country.

Formerly Deputy Head of the Office of the President of Ukraine Kirill Timoshenko stated that as a result of the strike of the Russian Armed Forces on the night of October 27, energy facilities in the central regions were damaged. For this reason, more stringent and prolonged power outages will be introduced in Kyiv and the central regions in the near future.

In this case, the previous schedules of rolling outages lose their force. New measures are needed to prevent a complete blackout of the central region of Ukraine. According to Ukrenergo, a power shortage of 30% of consumption has arisen in the Ukrainian capital and region.
