The Ministry of Energy said the power system is operating in a balanced manner and currently has no shortage of electricity. 

At the same time, during an air-raid on the morning of 6 April, equipment at a high-voltage substation in Kyiv Oblast and an overhead line were briefly shut down.

Several high-voltage overhead lines were switched off in Kharkiv Oblast for technological reasons, and equipment at a high-voltage substation was disconnected. During the day, the overhead lines and equipment at the substation were brought back online. 

"However, unfortunately, restrictions are still in place in Kharkiv Oblast because of significant damage to equipment as a result of large-scale attacks by the enemy," the Ministry of Energy said.
