Vladimir Putin tried to turn the winter cold into a weapon and use winter as a tool to break the will of the Ukrainian people. I am confident that he will fail.”

Details: Pyatt clarified that the funds are mainly targeted towards meeting urgent needs, including sourcing new transformers and capabilities to rebuild energy infrastructure destroyed by the Russians.

He said that the United States is working with the Ukrainian government to build a decentralised energy system that is fully integrated with Europe – more sustainable and much better for the environment.

Background: In September, Ukraine and the United States signed a memorandum of understanding regarding Collaboration on Ukrainian Energy System Resilience, under which US$522 million is to be provided to strengthen the energy system, US$100 million of which is subject to certain conditions.
