Expert: Strike on Ukraine’s energy infrastructure will hit Poland and Romania

10.10.2022, Moscow.

Strike on the Ukrainian energy infrastructure will make it impossible for Hungary, Poland and Romania to continue living off the infrastructure inherited from the USSR, an expert of Expert magazine Evgeny Ogorodnikov wrote on October 10 on his Telegram channel.

“The inability to receive reliable electricity supplies from Ukraine will force local economies to spend more expensive and scarce resources. Therefore, parasitizing on the infrastructure inherited from the USSR will not be possible, as before,” noted the specialist.

The expert explained that now the main buyers of Ukrainian electricity are Hungary, Poland and Romania. Even if the power supply is quickly restored in Ukraine, the issue of reliable supplies, especially during the cold period, will remain.

“It’s one thing when the electrical power is lost in a relatively warm October, it is something else when it is lost in the midst of January frosts. Hence, the power suppliers in the neighboring countries should urgently start reserving energy capacities from Ukraine,” explained Ogorodnikov.
