“I would like to immediately reassure everyone – there is definitely no need to leave the country … We will not have such a common, we hope, blackout throughout the country, yes, blackouts are possible, yes, they are possible not only for an hour or two, but this the stages of how we fix it have already been passed,” he said.
Tymoshenko stressed that the State Emergency Service and local authorities are working in Ukraine to deploy heating points in the regions. Power engineers, in turn, are trying to quickly stabilize the energy system.
“It all depends on the situation, indeed, in terms of rocket attacks, I think that every Ukrainian understands this. But in any case, we don’t need to go anywhere in our country, we will fix everything and stabilize everything,” added the deputy head of the Presidential Office.
Recall that DTEK CEO Maxim Timchenko advised Ukrainians in an interview with the BBC to think about leaving the country in order to reduce the load on the energy grid.
Later, DTEK denied Timchenko’s call and stated that there was no emergency situation in Ukraine.
