“Provided there are no attacks, energy workers need 3-5 weeks to return a more or less usual level of comfort to people,” Oleksandr Kharchenko

Today, the main problem is not the amount of electricity produced by the country, but the significant damage to its transportation routes, Oleksandr Kharchenko, Director at the Energy Industry Research Center said at a briefing at Media Center Ukraine — Ukrinform. He added that, provided there are no enemy attacks, it will take 3 to 5 weeks for the energy industry to return people to a more or less usual level of comfort.

“Imagine that there is a highway along which we transported electricity and there is an interchange on it, a destroyed bridge. And now we transport all this electricity via rural roads instead of the highway, and of course there are traffic jams, there is not enough capacity to power up everyone in full. Unfortunately, this is the reality that we have today. And in order to restore these highways at least a little, we need 3-4-5 calm weeks and we will be able to do it,” — Oleksandr Kharchenko explained.
