russia daily terrorizes the civilian population of Ukraine and inflicts targeted strikes on energy facilities in different regions of our country, de-energizing entire cities and villages. Repair crews tirelessly restore the energy infrastructure damaged by the enemy. But we must be ready for all the next attempts by the enemy to attack the power grid, as well as save electricity consumption as much as possible in order to allow the country to quickly repair the damage.


What to prepare in case of a power outage


The minimum set should consist of the following things:

• flashlights on batteries or night lamps;

• batteries of different types;
