On the night of 9 June, Russia launched another large-scale attack and damaged two gas production facilities, one facility of the operator of the natural gas transmission system (GTS) and power lines.
"Damage to two gas production facilities and a power line in Zhytomyr Oblast was recorded. In addition, as a result of the attack, one of the facilities of the Ukrainian GTS operator in Zaporizhia Oblast was hit. Dealing with the aftermath continues," the ministry said.
Specialists of Ukrhydroenergo, Ukraine's largest hydropower company, continue to apply operational regulation (reduce the volume of water discharge), considering the need to ensure the balance of the energy system and minimise the consequences of the blowing up of the Kakhovka Hydroelectric Power Plant by the invaders.
At the Kryvyi Rih Thermal Power Plant, the water level in the cooling pond is still sufficient to ensure the operation of power units. According to the Ministry of Energy, it will last for ten months to a year. However, in the future, due to a fall in the water level, it may be necessary to replenish the pond and, accordingly, ensure the smooth operation of the plant.
Power engineers in Kherson and Mykolaiv oblasts continue to record the consequences of the blowing up of the Kakhovska Hydroelectric Power Plant by Russians and the flooding caused by it.
In Kherson Oblast, 158 transformer substations are currently out of power; in Mykolaiv Oblast, 49 transformer substations are without power.
In addition, the water level in Kherson is gradually decreasing, having dropped to 5.3 metres as of 8:00 (Kyiv time) (the maximum was 5.68 metres).
