According to them, during the specified period, imports from Russia decreased by 2% to 4.35 million kWh of electricity.

In turn, on February 17, the import of electricity from Belarus increased by 3.3% to 12.78 million kWh.

This volume of electricity imports from Russia and Belarus is about 3.9% of the total average daily electricity consumption.

As Ukrainian News Agency earlier reported, Provisional Energy Minister Yurii Vitrenko said that in order to stop the import of electricity from Russia and Belarus, the Unified Energy System (UES) of Ukraine must be synchronized with the European Network of Transmission System Operators for Electricity (ENTSO-E).

The Ministry of Energy intends to synchronize the UES of Ukraine with ENTSO-E in 2023.
