On Wednesday, DTEK’s, Ukraine’s major energy company, said the it has lost  ‘about 90%’  of thermal power generation capacity after Russia stepped up attacks on Ukraine’s energy cites.

“Over the past three months alone, the enemy has launched seven massive attacks on our thermal power plants. As a result, about 90% of DTEK’s thermal generation capacity has been damaged or destroyed,” the energy company revealed in a statement.

Overall, the company’s thermal power stations have been attacked more than 180 times.  Repair work can reportedly cost some 14–16 billion hryvnas ($350–400 million).

DTEK company says they are doing their best to address the situation.  In 2024, the company has invested over 1.4 billion hryvnas into repairs and restoration. In addition,  3.9 billion hryvnas  will be set aside for this year’s restoration campaign.

“Given the scale of the destruction, recovery will go at a gradual pace,” said Ildar Saleev,  DTEK Energy CEO.
