It is noted that the malfunctions were eliminated, and the power unit itself was connected to the power grid on Sunday, 11 December, at 02:43.


"The repair of another VVER-1000 power unit, which was damaged as a result of attacks on Ukraine's energy infrastructure on 23 November 2022, is also being completed. In the coming days, it will also be connected to the power grid," adds Energoatom.

Currently, to meet the needs of the population and the country's economy, all other power units of domestic nuclear power plants, except for the temporarily occupied Zaporizhzhia Nuclear Power Plant, are operating at maximum capacity. Zaporizhzhia NPP, whose switching on is constantly blocked by the Russians, consumes about 100 MW of electricity for its own needs from the Ukrainian energy system.

Reminder: The Russian invaders severely beat Oleksii Trubenkov, the Head of the Management of Social Programs and his deputy Yurii Andriusov in the presence of the employees. They were taken to an unknown destination after the beating.
