It is noted that emergency power restrictions have been implemented in the Donetsk region at the direction of the system operator NPC Ukrenergo, leaving some consumers temporarily without electricity. For them, power supply will be resumed after the stabilization of the situation in the power system, according to the instructions of the Ukrenergo coordinator, as well as after completion of repairs to lines damaged by shelling.
