This was announced by Energy Minister Herman Halushchenko during a telethon. He explained that the large-scale campaign to repair and restore the power grids damaged by Russian shelling, which is currently underway, requires funding.

If we do not do this now, we will have problems with electricity next winter and will not be able to prepare for it,” Galushchenko emphasized.
