Ukraine pleads with the EU for further energy assistance amid a power crisis in the war-torn nation

Zelensky is now calling on the EU to assist at a time when around 40% of its critical infrastructure has been severely damaged.

The leader also thanked Simson for helping his country become a member of ENTOSO-E, which is the European energy grid.

Before the war, Ukraine used this membership to export critical energy across Europe.

“Unfortunately, due to the strikes of missiles and kamikaze drones by the Russian Federation on our energy system, we have suspended this process. But I am sure that we will restore everything, and in a calmer time, when the situation in our energy system will be stabilized, we will continue exporting electricity to Europe.”

It comes as Russia continues its attacks on civilian areas.

In the U.S., the department has announced millions in urgent humanitarian demining assistance to the war-torn country.

“The Department has awarded $47.6 million to Tetra Tech, Inc. to provide urgent humanitarian demining assistance to Ukraine in the face of Russia’s brutal war of aggression. This project forms part of $91.5 million in demining assistance announced in August.”
