US sends more than 100 generators to Ukraine amid Russian attacks on energy infrastructure


The US sends more than 100 generators to Ukraine amid Russian attacks on energy infrastructure.

The US has provided 109 generators and 19 heat and power generation stations to several regions in Ukraine, announced Bridget Brink, the US Ambassador to Ukraine, on social media.

In the last month, Russia renewed its attacks on Ukraine’s energy infrastructure, with its forces launching combined missile and drone assault on 22 March, using drones, ballistic, and cruise missiles to target energy facilities in Kharkiv, Dnipro, Poltava, Kryvyi Rih, Zaporizhzhia, Kropyvnytskyi, Khmelnytskyi, Odesa, Lviv, and Ivano-Frankivsk oblasts.
Energy Minister Herman Halushchenko dubbed it the largest attack against the country’s energy infrastructure in history.

Up to this date, the attacks have continued, leading to emergency shutdowns in Dnipropetrovsk Oblast and hourly shutdown schedules in Kharkiv Oblast.

“As Russia continues its brutal attacks against Ukraine’s energy infrastructure, @USAID is providing 109 generators, 19 heat, and power cogeneration units, and 13 emergency vehicles to keep services online in Dnipro, Vinnytsia, Ivano-Frankivsk, Lviv, Cherkasy, and Chernivtsi,” the ambassador wrote on X.

Earlier, Administrator of the United States Agency for International Development Samantha Power warned that USAID projects in Ukraine were at risk due to delays in Congress approving additional funding for Ukraine, according to Voice of America.

It concerns not only agriculture but also humanitarian programs in Ukraine, helping the most vulnerable groups of people, including those who have lost their homes in Russian shelling, women with children, and people suffering from post-traumatic stress disorders.
