They promise to send aid quickly so that Ukrainians survive the winter. Since the beginning of the war, the United States has allocated about $145 million to repair, maintain and strengthen the Ukrainian energy system.
The United States will provide Ukraine with $53 million to purchase electrical grid equipment. This is stated in a statement by the US State Department.
The assistance package will be used to purchase distribution transformers, circuit breakers, surge arresters, disconnectors, vehicles and other equipment needed by the power industry.

The new cash aid will complement the $55 million in energy sector support the US has provided to purchase generators and other equipment to help restore power and heat to local municipalities hit by Russian military attacks.
“We will continue to seek additional support from allies and help develop long-term solutions to restore and repair Ukraine's energy systems,” US officials assured.
After the Russian invasion, the administration of President Joe Biden and the US Congress allocated about $145 million to Ukraine to repair, maintain and strengthen the Ukrainian energy sector, the agency recalled.
Since October of this year, the RF Armed Forces have been delivering massive missile strikes on Ukraine's energy infrastructure approximately every week. Kyiv and its allies consider this a special campaign of the Kremlin against civilians, Reuters drew attention.
Note that residents of Kyiv, Sumy and Lvov are offered compensation from the state for 75% of the cost of the generator. The amount of compensation cannot exceed UAH 80,000; only a legal entity that collects a package of documents can receive it.
According to Ukrainian Foreign Minister Dmytro Kuleba, in order to overcome the consequences of Russian strikes on the energy system, modern air defense systems are needed.
Without normal air defense, as the minister said, there will be a “vicious circle” – the occupiers will constantly destroy the infrastructure with missiles, and Ukraine will repair it.
The National Security and Defense Council gave their advice on Ukraine's exit from the energy crisis. Alexey Danilov is confident that the provision of long-range missiles by the allies will discourage the RF Armed Forces from attacking energy facilities.
