EU Civil Protection Mechanism delivers powerful transformer to Ukraine

The European Civil Protection Mechanism has delivered to Ukraine a powerful transformer, donated by Latvia.

The transformer will bolster the damaged electricity supply for more than 500,000 Ukrainians.

After a recent surge of Russian attacks on Ukraine, the country’s energy grid once again teetered on the brink,” the EU Delegation to Ukraine said in a Facebook post.

In addition, Ukraine is receiving targeted support from the Ukraine Energy Support Fund, which was established to provide financial and in-kind assistance to repair Ukraine’s critical energy infrastructure damaged by Russian attacks and ensure the continued functionality of the energy sector. It is managed by the Energy Community Secretariat, co-chaired by the European Commission.
