According to the President of Moldova, one cannot trust the Kremlin regime, which forces people to live in cold weather and without light. According to the parliament, due to the critical situation, an automatic shutdown of the transit of electricity from Romania worked.
Moldovan President Maia Sandu commented on the problems with electricity supply in Moldova after massive Russian missile attacks on the energy system of Ukraine. The head of the Moldovan state wrote about this on her Facebook page.
“Russia has left Moldova in the dark,” she commented in particular.
Sandu noted that as a result of Russia’s military aggression against Ukraine, people are dying and residential areas are being destroyed. In addition, Moscow continues to fire missiles at the energy infrastructure.
“Attacks on Ukraine continue even now. People are pulling their wounded out from under the rubble. And they are mourning their dead loved ones. People’s lives cannot be reversed. But electricity supply can be restored,” the President specified.
The politician stressed that Moldova will definitely solve all technical problems and there will be light again in the country. All state institutions of the state are now working in this direction, she added.
According to the head of Moldova, one cannot trust the Russian regime, which leaves people in the dark and cold and “deliberately kills people out of a simple desire to keep other peoples in poverty and humiliation.”
“No matter how difficult it is now, our only path, the future path of the Republic of Moldova, must remain towards the free world,” Sandu summed up.
Deputy of the Moldovan Parliament Radu Maran, in turn, explained that the critical situation in Ukraine led to the automatic blocking of the transit line from Romania.
According to him, such a power outage was necessary to protect electrical networks and substations from overload.
“Had automatic shutdowns not been implemented, power plants could have been severely damaged and shutdowns could have lasted longer,” he said.
Blackout in Moldova: what is happening?
After massive missile attacks on critical infrastructure in Ukrainian cities on Wednesday, March 23, problems with energy supply began in neighboring Moldova.
There is no electricity in the houses, and in Chisinau, trolleybuses stopped due to lack of power in the network, as a result, the passage of vehicles on the roads was difficult. The city has become in traffic jams, and people at stops are waiting for at least some kind of public transport.
In some areas of the capital of Moldova, traffic lights do not work, and queues of cars lined up at gas stations.
The country also has problems with mobile communications. According to operators, communication will be restored after the resumption of electricity supply.
In some areas of the city, water supply was lost.
Recall that today, November 23, Russia launched massive missile strikes on a number of Ukrainian cities. Explosions sounded in the Nikolaev, Dnepropetrovsk, Zaporozhye, Odessa, Poltava regions and Kherson.
Due to the shelling, Lvov was completely de-energized. In Dnepropetrovsk and Vinnitsa regions, enemy missiles hit targets.
