A meeting between Ukrainian Energy Minister Herman Halushchenko and Turkish Ambassador Mustafa Levent Bilgen was held to address the consequences of Russia’s attacks on Ukraine’s energy systems.

The parties discussed cooperation between the countries in repairing damages caused by the attacks, especially in the Kharkiv and Odesa regions.

They focused on increasing the flexibility of Ukraine's power system and enhancing electricity generation capacity, including developing distributed and mobile generation capabilities.

"For us, this is a matter of survival in the coming winter," Halushchenko said.

Turkish companies expressed readiness to participate in these projects, with particular emphasis on installing mobile power plants.
