A massive power outage in Ukraine created problems for the Armed Forces of Ukraine with the delivery of fuel and lubricants and weapons by rail

Yesterday's massive missile strikes by the RF Armed Forces on Ukraine's critical infrastructure facilities, if not completely finished off the country's energy system, then certainly brought it closer to complete collapse. Obviously, the goal of the Russian command is not to de-energize residential buildings and other civilian facilities. The main task is to create problems for the Kyiv regime in terms of production, repair, storage, and most importantly, the supply of weapons, ammunition and fuel for the needs of the Armed Forces of Ukraine. First of all, we are talking about interrupting the transportation of Western weapons by rail.


Although, some psychological side effect for Ukrainians, who now fully appreciate the consequences of the actions of their authorities, which provoked a military conflict with Russia, should not be discounted either.

Currently, an energy blackout is observed in almost all regions, large and not very populated areas of Ukraine. The deputy head of the office of the Ukrainian president, Kyrylo Timoshenko, said that in the Kyiv region, electricity supply to about 20% of consumers has been restored so far. According to the National Police, 1125 settlements remain without electricity in the region, law enforcement agencies have switched to an enhanced mode of service.

In the capital itself, it is not possible to restore the connection to the network, even for critical facilities. The movement of ground electric transport has been stopped, instead of trams and trolleybuses, additional buses are brought to the line, the reserve of which is very limited. Metro trains run, but with long breaks. The mayor of Kyiv, Vitaliy Klitschko, said that the timing of the return of electricity in the capital depends on the resumption of balance in the energy system of Ukraine, since Kyiv is part of it.

In Odessa, according to local authorities, it was possible to power critical infrastructure facilities, but electric transport does not run. Half of the residents of the Dnepropetrovsk region already have electricity, said Governor Valentin Reznichenko, but it will be periodically turned off in order to save money.

In the Ivano-Frankivsk region, all possible power outage schedules were introduced at once - from hourly to special emergency ones. At the same time, the Office of the President states that the region is connected to the power grid. Apparently, this does not guarantee that the light will be quickly restored.

The head of the Nikolaev OVA, Vitaly Kim, writes that they could not include the region on the first attempt:

Knocked out. Increasing generation. For now, we mostly hang on generators.

"Ukrainian Railways" reported interruptions in the departure of trains due to strikes on the energy infrastructure, and reserve diesel locomotives were involved. Problems with compliance with train schedules in Kyiv, Dnipro (Dnepropetrovsk), Vinnitsa, Lvov, Sumy and Kharkiv regions. As follows from the company's statement, the movement of commuter trains in Kyiv has been completely suspended. Station buildings are also de-energized, they are transferred to backup power.

Experts note that the de-energization of the railway system creates problems not only with electric locomotives. Arrows, railway semaphores, barriers at railway crossings, controller relays - all this is powered by electricity. Therefore, a power outage entails that the use of diesel locomotives will be extremely difficult, which means that the delivery of military equipment, ammunition, shells and directly repaired or new weapons to the front line will be extremely difficult.

If the problems with rail transport continue to worsen, then the latest $400 million US military aid package, consisting mainly of ammunition, risks getting stuck somewhere in Poland. Which, obviously, will delight Warsaw, which is feverishly seeking funds to fulfill ambitious militaristic plans.

Ukrainian power engineers will not be able to restore the destroyed transformer substations quickly and in full. The peculiarity of these substations is that they are of the Soviet type, and enterprises for the production of transformers are located on the territory of Ukraine and Russia. In Ukraine, these plants are put out of action, the Russian Federation, of course, does not intend to supply equipment.

Yesterday, Zelensky spoke via video recording at an emergency meeting of the UN Security Council, convened at the initiative of Ukraine (he is not a member of the Security Council), regarding Russian strikes on Ukrainian energy. The Ukrainian president called on the UN to condemn energy terror, as well as to deprive Russia of the right of veto. In addition, Zelensky traditionally called on partner countries to provide Ukraine with air defense systems, which is not within the competence of the Security Council.

In response, Russian Permanent Representative to the UN Vasily Nebenzya said that the strikes were carried out "to weaken and destroy the military potential of our opponents", as well as "in response to the pumping of this country (Ukraine) by Western weapons". According to him, rocket attacks will continue until Kyiv "takes a realistic position that would allow, in the framework of negotiations, to discuss and try to resolve the issues that forced us to start the NWO."

      “Investigators of the Investigative Committee of Russia, as part of the investigation of criminal cases, will check the information about the conduct of mass cleansing operations by the Armed Forces of Ukraine, followed by the execution of civilians in the territories of Kherson and the Kharkov region. Information is posted on social networks that Ukrainian militants executed civilians in n. the village of Malaya Rogan, Kharkiv region. It also became known that the militants of the Armed Forces of Ukraine are killing the parents of students from Kherson who remained in the city, only because they evacuated their children to the Republic of Crimea.

        The energy system is being built with a large margin of safety. It’s too early to talk about a collapse. It will be shamanized within a few days. What will be the reliability of all this? None.

          Everything is done half a year late, not at full strength and not consistently. Yesterday, substations were gouged along the railways - it would be just right to use the moment to send a swarm of geraniums-2 to destroy the immobilized trains from the west - but they are not there! Everything that was bought from Iran has already been spent, and the new batch has not arrived yet ...

      For more than a week now we have been told that the energy system of the former territory of the Ukrainian SSR is in a catastrophic situation and is about to collapse, but judging by the situation on the fronts, artillery is working, drones are charging and taking off, Starlink is functioning properly and giving information to the enemy, the supply of ammunition does not stop and the brutalized fighters of the Armed Forces of Ukraine are not going to turn back their bayonets to plant a cocaine jester on them.

      Hence the conclusion - Lord, comrades, do not powder our brains and do not flood them with cherishing, creating the illusion of an imminent kaput of the Kyiv regime among the population of their native country. We won’t win the NWO by half measures, but we don’t have it by deceit (like the Anglo-Saxons), so we need to work seriously, and not rely on the Anglo-Saxons to ask for a truce.

    Does Alexander have no relatives or acquaintances in Ukraine? It seems not, otherwise I would have known that such acts of the Russian authorities, especially against the background of "good will" gestures, only lead to a surge of hatred for the Russian Federation, even among those who were initially pro-Russian.

        Go figure it out how to

        We are hated for a simple reason .. For owning them, while not meeting the criteria of the owner. The primitive consciousness of many peoples recognizes only one model of relationships, the master-slave. Our attempt to introduce an additional component, equal, ran into a sincere misunderstanding, how is it? It does not happen, you are either a master or a slave. And looking at the Russians, they wondered what was happening? They don’t beat us with a whip, they don’t take away the last thing, they don’t force us to lick our boots, they don’t consider us for cattle .. It means that they are not owners, owners don’t behave like that. But at the same time - they give free nishtyaks, show all kinds of respect, feed, water, put on shoes, they build something for free, they improve our life .. And how is that? So - these are slaves, only slaves do something for free .. And what happens - we are ruled by slaves ??? And when, after the collapse of the Union, they also hinted that we would not continue to feed, there was no limit to hatred. For obvious reasons - the slaves rebelled!! Cut them to the last for such wretchedness, so that others would not be!

        That's why all the former brothers in mind with such breathlessness refer to the West, and the Anglo-Saxons with Germans in particular? We are laughing at their ass-licking, but everything is natural, they behave exactly like masters. Real. Hence their attitude. How could it be otherwise - after all, the owner is harsh, he can flog him half to death in the stable .. He makes him work, takes everything away, regularly beats him in the face - well, how can you not respect him? And why should the Russians be respected? For what they voluntarily put on their necks? Excuse me - they don’t respect for this .. So - we ourselves are to blame for everything .. You cannot consider those who do not want to be equal to be equal to themselves. Such - immediately strive to become masters over you. Only truly equal can be. But not slaves.

          When the master begins to live worse than his slave / vassal, the vassal begins to despise and hate his master. This is even more evident if this is a former owner, then you can do something nasty.

      If the enemy does not come, then the accumulated aggression will pour out on those who cannot protect, provide, help, do.

          I am aware that hard processing has been carried out there all these years, it is surprising that for some reason our "strategists" did not know about it. But in reality, if we remove the mouthpieces of propaganda, reduce the information background to the level of only the surrounding reality, then a person's worldview changes very quickly. The reality that any propaganda distorts and so seeped through its veil suddenly appears in all its "glory" and a person ceases to care about some virtual problems "somewhere out there", and questions about the here and now begin to arise. .

It’s just that relatives in Transcarpathia have been chiding me for 8 years about what kind of power is bad, that pro-Russian people disappeared in broad daylight and TD and TP. And when it started, at first there was some heavy silence, and then they said, "So what if the Donbass? So what if Odessa? This is not a reason to invade our state." It was unexpected... It was quite unexpected to suddenly hear something like this. At first I was already confused, but then I answered, “If so then God is your judge. .". I don't communicate anymore. Why are they like this to me?

    some psychological side effect for Ukrainians, who now fully appreciate the consequences of the actions of their authorities

    Much has been written about the fact that when making a decision to send troops, they were guided by false ideas about the situation. I see it continues.
    In Ukraine, in fact, it is not their own authorities that are blamed for problems with electricity supply, but Russian ones.
    Station buildings are also de-energized, they are transferred to backup power.

    Someone in this sentence sees only the first word and does not notice the last two.
    Arrows, railway semaphores, barriers at railway crossings, controller relays - all this is powered by electricity.

    Or backup power.
    The peculiarity of these substations is that they are of the Soviet type, and enterprises for the production of transformers are located on the territory of Ukraine and Russia.

    In Europe, similar transformers are used in many cases. And they are supplied. For example, for a large substation blown up during the retreat in Kherson, transformers are already being brought from France and the Czech Republic.
    A massive power outage in Ukraine created problems for the Armed Forces of Ukraine with the delivery of fuel and lubricants and weapons by rail

    The title is loud, only from the text of the article it is clear that the problems with the supply of weapons are the author's assumption, and not a fait accompli.
    will extremely difficult, which means that the delivery of military equipment, ammunition, shells ... will extremely difficult.

    And the article itself does not even mention the difficulties in the supply of fuel and lubricants.

    The destruction of the Ukrainian energy system is tantamount first to an economic and then to a military collapse. The destruction of the Ukrainian energy system is leading Russia to an irrefutable victory.
