Blackout in Ukraine – Ukrainians can sit without electricity for a week – UNIAN

In the worst-case scenario, the Russian Federation will inflict a series of massive strikes on open switchgears of nuclear power plants and on substations that connect the Ukrainian energy system with the European one.

The Russian Federation regularly attacks Ukrainian energy facilities, after a large-scale strike on November 23, many users are still without electricity and water.

Therefore, Forbes journalists published three blackout options from the report, which is at the disposal of the government.

First scenario. Blackout on the Left Bank

In such a scenario, the Russian Federation strikes at transit substations that transmit electricity from the west to the east of the country and strikes at power plants on the Left Bank. Due to this development of events, Chernihiv, Sumy, Poltava, Dnipropetrovsk regions, as well as parts of Kharkov, Zaporozhye, Donetsk and Luhansk regions controlled by Ukraine will remain without electricity for 12 hours or a day. Partially – Nikolaev, Kherson, Kirovograd, Cherkasy and Kyiv regions, together with the left bank of Kyiv.

Second scenario. Blackout of the whole country

Russia in this scenario attacks power plants and substations throughout the country. And Ukraine will be connected to the European energy grid, but will have to sit without electricity from 12 to 24 hours throughout the territory controlled by Kyiv.

Third scenario. Blackout of the whole country up to 7 days

In the worst-case scenario, the Russian Federation will inflict a series of massive strikes on open switchgears of nuclear power plants and on substations that connect the Ukrainian energy system with the European one. It is likely that the nuclear power plant will shut down altogether, they will not be able to heal within 2 hours. Then, first of all, connections between the Ukrainian and European energy systems will be restored.

“Electricity will be given priority to the needs of utilities and the population. It may take up to 7 days to resume the operation of nuclear power plants. Only after that the industry will be powered,” Forbes journalists describe the worst-case blackout scenario in Ukraine.

Blackout in Ukraine: threat or not

Russia has been launching massive missile attacks on Ukrainian energy facilities since October 10, 2022. On November 15, Russia fired 100 rockets into Ukraine. It was the most massive shelling of the energy system of our country since the beginning of a full-scale war.

On November 19, Zelensky announced that the invaders had destroyed about 50% of Ukraine’s energy infrastructure.

On November 23, Russia again dealt a massive blow to the energy system of Ukraine. Energy Minister Herman Galushchenko said that Ukraine survived the blackout. Now many users are still without electricity and water supply.

Ukrainians have been warned that if enemy shelling of energy infrastructure facilities continues, planned and emergency power outages in Ukraine could become more frequent and longer.

On November 22, CEO of YASNO energy supply company (a sub-holding of DTEK) Serhiy Kovalenko called the emergence of an “energy apocalypse” in Ukraine unlikely.
