Ukraine will spend $800 million on electricity imports


In 2024, Ukraine will be forced to spend $800 million on electricity imports. The reason is a deficit in the energy system after the Russian missile attacks on energy. Deputy Chairman of the National Bank of Ukraine, Serhii Nikolaychuk, announced this at a briefing.

"If we talk about imports, in April we imported 0,3 GW, in May - 0,6 GW. In terms of value, these are not very significant amounts that do not have a decisive impact on the currency market. According to our April forecast, we expect electricity imports to cost us about $800 million this year." Nikolaychuk noted.

According to him, the situation with imports may be more difficult in June due to warmer weather and planned repairs at nuclear power plants

"In the coming months, this problem should be partly compensated by the expansion of the permission of the European network of system operators for the transmission of electricity on a commercial basis." Nikolaychuk said.

Earlier it was reported that the import of electricity from the EU countries to Ukraine has practically reached a physical maximum.
