Nachgetragen fürs Archiv: Zum andauernden russischen Angriffskrieg gegen die Ukraine der Sammler am 27. November 2022:
• Nach den schweren Luftangriffen auf die Energieversorgung der Ukraine, vor allem auf die Stromnetze, ist es dem Land nach eigenen Angaben gelungen, einen Großteil wieder instand zu setzen, wie tagesschau.de berichtet:
Vier Tage nach schweren russischen Angriffen sind weite Teile der ukrainischen Strom- und Wasserversorgung wiederhergestellt. Etwa 80 Prozent der Nachfrage nach Strom würden derzeit gedeckt, erklärte der staatliche Energieversorger Ukrenergo. Tags zuvor waren es noch 75 Prozent gewesen.
Auch in der Hauptstadt Kiew würden fast alle Haushalte wieder mit Strom, Wasser und Wärme versorgt und das Mobilfunknetz funktioniere, teilte die Militärverwaltung im Nachrichtenkanal Telegram mit. Die Reparaturarbeiten am Stromnetz befänden sich in der Endphase. Aufgrund der hohen Belastung könne es noch zu lokalen Ausfällen kommen.
Interessant ist die – öffentlich wenig wahrgenommene – Rolle, die deutsche Unternehmen aus Energieversorgung und spezialisiertem Maschinenbau dabei spielen (sollen). Aus einer Mitteilung der ukrainischen Regierung am Sonntag:
Minister of Energy of Ukraine German Galushchenko held an online meeting with State Secretaries of the Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Climate Action of Germany Franziska Brantner and Stefan Wenzel and heads of leading German energy companies. The meeting was also attended by Deputy Minister of Energy of Ukraine for European Integration Yaroslav Demchenkov and Head of NPC Ukrenergo Volodymyr Kudrytskyi.
German Galushchenko stressed that as a result of massive missile attacks by Russia about 50% of the entire energy infrastructure of Ukraine was damaged. Therefore, energy companies are now in critical need of equipment and materials to repair energy facilities and restore stable energy supply to consumers.
“We need equipment for urgent repairs, and we also need to create a critical reserve, because the attacks will continue. The priority is high-voltage equipment. It is not only about humanitarian aid. We are ready to buy equipment and do everything to deliver it as quickly as possible. We appreciate the support of our German partners in the framework of the German-Ukrainian Energy Partnership. But now we urgently need to intensify these efforts, because this affects the operation of our energy system during the winter at low temperatures,” emphasized German Galushchenko.
The German side assured the Ukrainian side of full support for Ukraine. Representatives of energy companies stressed that they would make every effort to increase and accelerate assistance to the Ukrainian energy sector.
The meeting was attended by representatives of TransnetBW GmbH, TenneTTSO GmbH, AmprionGmbH, 50Hertz Transmission GmbH, ABB, RWE Generation SE, Siemens Energy, Exide Technologies, Tyco Electronics Raychem GmbH, Tridelta Meidensha GmbH, the Embassy of Germany in Ukraine, the Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Climate Action of Germany, the Secretariat of the German-Ukrainian Energy Partnership, GIZ, and others.
• Das britische Intel Update:
The area around the towns of Pavlivka and Vuhledar in south-central Donetsk Oblast has been the scene of intense combat over the last two weeks, though little territory has changed hands.
Both Russia and Ukraine have significant forces committed to this sector, with Russian Naval Infantry having suffered heavy casualties.
This area remains heavily contested, likely partially because Russia assesses the area has potential as a launch point for a future major advance north to capture the remainder of Ukrainian-held Donetsk Oblast.
However, Russia is unlikely to be able to concentrate sufficient quality forces to achieve an operational breakthrough.
