Ukraine wants to support Germany on its path to independence from Russian energy supplies by providing nuclear power.
“Currently, Ukraine exports its electricity to Moldova, Romania, Slovakia and Poland. But we are quite ready to expand our exports to Germany,” Ukrainian Prime Minister Denys Shmyhal told the German news agency. “We have a sufficient amount of electricity in Ukraine thanks to our nuclear plants. During my visit to Berlin and then to Brussels, I will put that.”
Shmyhal is expected in Berlin on Saturday and will be received by Chancellor Olaf Scholz (SPD) at the Chancellery on Sunday. Alongside the Russian invasion in late February, Ukraine, along with neighboring Moldova, had been disconnected from the former Soviet power grid. In mid-March, the country was synchronized with the European network.
