Electricity transmission system operator Ukrenergo believes there is now little chance of a total blackout in Ukraine due to Russian missile attacks, Chairman of the Board of the company Volodymyr Kudrytskyi said during the telethon program on Dec. 31.

"I believe that we have already passed the worst with these missile attacks, I really hope so,” he said.

“The dynamics of these attacks and the effect of the attacks shows that the Russians have less and less ability to harm our energy system.”

According to him, power engineers have learned to prepare for possible Russian attacks.

"It seems to me that this attack potential will be increasingly exhausted,” Kudrytskyi added.

“I am sure that the Russians, who are now losing on the conventional front, will also lose on the energy front.”
