Europe prepares emergency assistance to Kyiv: transformers and generators

The European Commission is preparing emergency delivery to Ukraine of energy equipment donated by EU countries, as well as allocated from the EU reserves. This was announced on Friday by the head of the European Commission Ursula von der Layen after a telephone conversation with the President of Ukraine Vladimir Zelensky, foreign media reported.

According to her, 200 medium -sized transformers and a large motor -transformer from Lithuania, medium -traffic amendor from Latvia, as well as 40 heavy generators from the EU reserves located in Romania, will be sent through the EU Coordinating Center for EU Coordination. generators can provide a small or medium -sized hospital with uninterrupted food.

Transformers that increase or reduce the voltage in the network are extremely necessary, since they are the goals of Russian missile strikes in electrical substations. Von der Layen also noted that the European Commission is working on the creation of an energy hub in Poland, which would accept donations from energy equipment and other funds from third countries and coordinated their sending to Ukraine.
