United to win: Moldova to provide Ukraine with equipment for electrical network repair

Moldova decided to transfer another package of humanitarian aid to Ukraine.

The press service of the Ministry of Internal Affairs of Moldova reported this.

This time, Chisinau handed over equipment for power grid repair to Kyiv. The assistance cost is 1.2 million lei (about 67 thousand dollars).

The humanitarian aid package includes electrical equipment such as cables, lamps, current transformers, various clamps, insulators, and other necessary items to power up Ukraine.

"The Republic of Moldova stands in solidarity with Ukraine and offers its unwavering support and assistance to the Ukrainian people," the message reads.

For reference:

It is worth noting that this is not the first time Moldova has transferred humanitarian aid to Ukraine. In particular, Chisinau provided help for liquidating the consequences of the Russian army's detonation of the Kakhovka HPP.

President Volodymyr Zelensky announced in an address to Ukrainians that Ukraine will be getting more German Gepard air defense systems to protect the energy network.

During the 500 days of the full-scale war, half of Ukraine's energy sector was damaged by Russian shelling, and 271 hits to energy facilities have been recorded.

Since March 2022, Ukraine has received over 8,000 tons of humanitarian equipment from 31 countries.

Ukraine is also preparing for possible strikes on power plants in the fall since the Russians continue to produce missiles, and their previous campaign to destroy the Ukrainian energy industry did not achieve its goal.

We also reported that the new UNDP report indicates the continued vulnerability of the Ukrainian energy sector.
