Russia refuses supplying electricity to Ukraine in heat peaks

Ukraine in the period of heat peaks asked Russia to provide technical assistance and extra supplies of electricity, although Russia refused to do this, Ukrainian Energy and Coal Industry Ihor Nasalyk has said, Joinfo.ua reports with reference to Interfax-Ukraine.

“We asked technical aid from Russia, and the country refused to provide this aid,” he said at a press conference in Kyiv on Thursday.

Nasalyk said that Ukraine coped with peak burdens in the conditions of halted coal supplies from territories of Donetsk region that are beyond control of the Ukrainian government without importing electricity.

He also said that the autumn and winter period when electricity consumption is lower than in some summer periods would be passed without rotating blackouts.
