Russian War Against Ukraine: Energy Dimension (Status as of April 21)

DiXi Group has prepared its next alert on the energy dimension of the Russian war against Ukraine.

  • Intensification of hostilities unables restoration of infrastructure. Almost 757,500 consumers remained without electricity supply, over 240,000 consumers remained without gas supply.
  • The readiness for the Centralised Spent Nuclear Fuel Storage Facility operation in the Chornobyl NPP Exclusion Zone is confirmed. Its use is limited by the ban on transportation of nuclear materials due to martial law and by the need to obtain a permit from the State Nuclear Regulatory Inspectorate.
  • Ukraine has sufficient reserves of fresh nuclear fuel for approximately two years. The new deliveries of Westinghouse fuel previously planned for 2025 have to be accelerated and take place already in 2023.
  • Energoatom insists on imposing sanctions on Rosatom by blocking its foreign economic activity, seizure of accounts, and exclusion from the international organisations as well as professional associations.
  • The international working group on sanctions against Russia at the President of Ukraine published the plan to enhance sanctions, including those in the energy sector.
  • The National Energy and Utilities Regulatory Commission revoked licenses of five energy companies whose activities are controlled by the residents of Russia.
