October was the month of the Russian attack on the power sources of Ukraine. The last mass attempt to deprive Ukrainians of heat, light, and water took place a few hours ago. Ukrainian defenders destroyed most of its air targets, costing $400-600 million. However, in case the occupiers continue to launch missile attacks on power plants, Ukraine will have a backup plan.
Ukraine will acquire reserve equipment for critical infrastructure. The government of Germany will give the money for this. Berlin has agreed to provide Ukraine with €20 million to purchase the necessary equipment. This became known during the meeting of the minister of community development and territories, Oleksii Chernyshov, with the minister of the federal Ministry of environment, nature protection, nuclear safety, and consumer rights protection Steffi Lemke. The representatives of the two countries have a final discussion of the agreements. It is reported that the funds will be used to purchase portable generators and thermal power plants, and automatic pumping stations for water supply.
"In the conditions when our infrastructure is under the constant thermal target, we need to provide Ukraine with the reserve capacity to the maximum, and Ukrainians with warm, light, and water. All necessary equipment will be purchased for the allocated funds from Germany. Alternative sources of energy in Ukraine will be," the minister said.
The partner countries provide assistance, which is necessary both for the ordinary population of Ukraine and for defenders on the front.
