Ukraine’s Cabinet of Ministers at a meeting on April 12 extended the state of emergency in the electricity market for one more month.
“This is about the temporary measures on the electricity market. Does anyone have objections? Let’s continue, the decision is approved,” Ukrainian Prime Minister Volodymyr Groysman said.
As reported, emergency measures in the energy sector, stipulated in government resolution No. 103-r of Feb. 15, came into effect on Feb. 17 because of the blockade by activists with the support of a number of people’s deputies of deliveries of goods from the separatist-held territories of Donbas, in particular, anthracite coal, which is used by half of thermal power plants in the country.
