Ukraina. La Russia è a metà dell’opera. Con l’inverno la rete elettrica sarà distrutta.

Cercando di capire cosa stia succedendo nei fatti, dalla ridda di informazioni contrastanti sembrerebbe emergere che gli attacchi russi alle infrastrutture energetiche e termiche ukraine ne abbiano dimezzato la capacità.

Tenendo conto che questo risultato è stato ottenuto in circa due mesi di attacchi, sembrerebbe lecito inferire che tra altri due mesi l’intera rete elettrica ukraina dovrebbe essere messa fuori uso, con tutte le conseguenze che ne derivano.

Gli articoli pubblicati dai media di regime sono davvero folkloristici, ai limiti del ridicolo.

Ne riportiamo un solo esempio.

«un veterinario in camice blu e maschera facciale ha acceso una luce sul tavolo operatorio in una clinica buia mentre i colleghi operavano un cane malato nella tarda serata di giovedì»

La situazione non appare poi essere così miserevole come si dice essa sia.

Gli ukraini possono permettersi il lusso di operare dei cani, si pensi solo al costo dei materiali e della sterilizzazione. Ci fosse vera miseria il cane se lo sarebbero mangiato.

Poi, ragioniamo.

Se i produttori stessero fornendo il 70% dei bisogni energetici, come mai sarebbe possibile che la metà della popolazione stia al buio? Il conto non torna, proprio per nulla.

                         Quasi la metà dei residenti di Kiev è ancora senza elettricità. Attacchi russi sistematici e mirati per settimane hanno messo in ginocchio le infrastrutture energetiche dell’Ucraina mentre il Paese si avvia verso un gelido inverno, facendo temere una crisi sanitaria e un ulteriore esodo, a nove mesi dall’inizio della guerra. Metà dei consumatori è ancora senza elettricità.

                         Durante il giorno, le compagnie energetiche prevedono di ricollegare l’elettricità a tutti i consumatori su base alternata. Venerdì a Kiev file di auto si sono accodate fuori dalle stazioni di servizio per fare rifornimento. Ukrenergo ha dichiarato che i produttori stanno fornendo più del 70% del fabbisogno in tutto il Paese.

Half of Kyiv residents still without electricity after strikes.

Nearly half of Kyiv residents were still without electricity on Friday as engineers battled to restore services two days after Russian strikes hammered the country’s energy grid.

Systematic and targeted Russian attacks for weeks have brought Ukraine’s energy infrastructure to its knees as the country careens towards a freezing winter, spurring fears of a health crisis and a further exodus, nine months into war.

Municipal workers struggled Friday to reconnect essential services such as heat and water as temperatures in Kyiv approached freezing and UK Foreign Secretary James Cleverly visited to announce a new aid package.

“Half of consumers are still without electricity,” Mayor Vitali Klitschko said. “A third of houses in Kyiv already have heating and specialists continue to restore it.”

“During the day, energy companies plan to reconnect electricity for all consumers on an alternating basis,” he wrote on Telegram.

Lines of cars queued outside petrol stations in Kyiv on Friday to stock up, AFP journalists said. Mobile networks in some areas were still experiencing disruptions.

Nationwide, repair work was ongoing, said Volodymyr Kudrytskyi, head of national electricity operator Ukrenergo, but insisted that “the most difficult stage” had passed.

Ukrenergo said that producers were providing more than 70 percent of the need across the country.

                         ‘We live like this now’

Millions of Ukrainians have endured the cold without power since Russia fired dozens of missiles and launched drone attacks at water and electricity facilities on Wednesday.

“Yes, this is a difficult situation and yes, it can happen again. But Ukraine can cope,” presidential advisor Mykhailo Podolyak said on television.

With gas for cooking and heating disconnected in her Kyiv apartment, Albina Bilogub told AFP that she and her children all sleep in the same room to stay warm.

“In our building, very few people have gas, so we go to the woman that I work for — I change her clothes because she is disabled — and we cook there,” she said.

“This is our life. One sweater, a second, a third. We live like this now.”

In northern Kyiv, a vet in blue scrubs and a face mask shone a light over an operating table in a darkened clinic as colleagues operated on an ailing dog late Thursday.

“We were in the middle of an operation and our lights turned off because a rocket fell not far away, so there was a power cut,” said Oleksiy Yankovenko.

“I had to finish the operation under the flashlights,” he added.

                         ‘Brutal attacks’

Ukraine’s Western allies have denounced the Russian attacks on energy as a “war crime”, coming in the wake of a string of military setbacks for Russia on the frontlines.

Moscow insists it targets only military linked infrastructure and blamed Kyiv for the blackouts, saying Ukraine can end the suffering by agreeing to Russian demands.

Britain’s foreign minister announced new aid for Ukraine during his visit to Kyiv, including ambulances and support for victims of sexual violence by Russian soldiers.

“As winter sets in, Russia is continuing to try and break Ukrainian resolve through its brutal attacks on civilians, hospitals and energy infrastructure,” Cleverly said.

“Russia will fail,” he said, vowing UK support “will continue for as long as it takes”.

The attacks on Ukraine’s grid are Russia’s latest strategy designed to force Ukrainian capitulation after Moscow’s forces failed to topple the government and capture Kyiv nine months after launching their invasion.

Russian forces have shelled the southern city of Kherson, from which they retreated earlier this month in their latest setback. The Ukrainian presidency said 11 people were killed and nearly 50 injured in the Kherson region on Thursday.
