KYIV. Sept 29 (Interfax-Ukraine) – As of September 29, after repairs, a high-voltage overhead line in the east of the country was put into operation, which significantly increased the reliability of power supply for the entire region.
"Part of the line runs through de-occupied territory, which the enemy densely mined during their retreat. Despite the danger, our repair teams met the deadline - before the start of the heating season," NPC Ukrenergo reported on Friday.
