Swedish kraftnät may donate to Ukraine
Swedish power grid gets the green light from the government to donate materials to Ukraine that can help build up the country’s energy supply.
The government writes that in one press release.
“In the past, the government has given a support package aimed at air defenses, which strengthens Ukraine’s ability to defend itself against attacks against, for example, the energy system. The support from Svenska kraftnät contributes to the reconstruction of the electricity system. Together, these supports provide protection for society,” says Energy and Industry Minister Ebba Busch.
Russian attacks in the fall have damaged much of Ukraine’s energy infrastructure.
