Moldelectrica announces that electricity supply has been restored in most localities, according to Deputy Prime Minister Spînu. The official repeatedly refers to the bombings against Ukraine, implying that they also affected Moldova’s infrastructure.
“The Russian aggression against Ukraine directly affects our country as well. The risks of power outages remain high. Any bombing by Russia against Ukrainian power plants may lead to a repeat of today’s situation. I urge you to continue saving and we remain in solidarity!”, concludes Spînu.
On Tuesday evening, dozens of towns in Moldova remained in the dark. Premier Energy announced that, starting at 16:37, there was a damaged disconnection in the transmission system operated by Moldelectrica. The supplier stated that a large number of consumers were affected by the power outage.
