At the meeting, the electricity systems of Ukraine and Moldova were assessed as reliable and stable during isolated mode operation, in spite of the extremely challenging circumstances.
On the other hand, it was underlined that an accelerated emergency synchronisation of electricity systems of the two countries is needed to ensure uninterrupted electricity supply, including safe operation of nuclear power plants in Ukraine. The Ukrainian side also expressed a need for a supply of fuels such as coal and diesel.
The Energy Community secretariat informs that Ukraine confirmed its continued efforts to fulfil obligations for the transit of Russian gas through its territory.
Coordinated technical and regulatory measures were discussed to enable reverse flow on the Trans-Balkan Pipeline towards Ukraine, under the South-East European Gas Initiative (SEEGAS).
