The Russian occupiers are spreading disinformation that allegedly Ukraine, in many regions of which power outages continue after the shelling of the Russian Federation, exports energy to the EU countries.

As the Center for Counteracting Disinformation noted, with the help of such messages, the Russian Federation is trying to mislead Ukrainians and divert public attention from the only reason for the power outage – missile attacks on Ukrainian energy facilities.

“The fact that the disseminated information is fake, confirming the following facts: the export of electricity from Ukraine was stopped on 10/11/2022 by the decision of the Ministry of Energy, immediately after the first attack on the energy system; the cessation of export is confirmed by the results of auctions for access to the bandwidth of interstate networks, which are on the electronic auction platform “Ukrenergo”, – emphasized in the JCC.
