Ukraine: TogetherWeBringLight programme moves to small towns and urban settlements

The joint EU-Ukrainian programme, #TogetherWeBringLight, has now also started to work in small towns and urban settlements.

Previously, the programme to replace old incandescent light bulbs with new LEDs had only been active in regional centres, as well as in Kriviy Rih, Kramatorsk, and Pokrovsk. By the end of February, even the smallest villages should receive the LED bulbs.

Since the launch of the programme, Ukrainians have already ordered over 1.1 million energy saving bulbs through the Diia app. The European Union will fund 30 million LED bulbs.

Under the rules of the programme, every adult citizen of Ukraine may exchange five old bulbs for the new LEDs. To do this, you need to apply for the exchange in the Diia app and pick up your order at the Ukrposhta branch. It is still possible to exchange your bulbs without registering with Diia, subject to availability at your local post office.
