Every year, on November 11, worldwide, the International Energy Conservation Day is celebrated. Its main purpose is to focus the attention of authorities and society on rational use of resources and development of renewable energy sources.
Today, in the context of a full-scale war, this holiday has gained special relevance for us.
Before the beginning of a heating season, Russia resorted to energy terror in Ukraine. In an effort to cause maximum damage to Ukrainian energy facilities, the occupiers have been massively bombarding thermal power plants, combined heat and power plants, and energy grids.
Russian terrorists have created such difficult conditions for our energy workers that no one in Europe has ever encountered. There were no similar threats as our specialists have to overcome now. And they are doing it with honor.
I want to thank all energy industry workers, our rescuers, repair crews, local government and private companies working 24/7 to keep our grid running.
No matter what the enemy is doing, our aim is to destroy his plans and protect Ukraine. And it’s not just someone’s mission, it’s not just about energy workers, it’s about all of us. What is needed now is the conscious consumption of energy by all Ukrainians.
It’s our common contribution to the preservation of the unified energy system of Ukraine.
I’m sure we will pass this darkness with courage and dignity. The main thing is to keep the light in your heart and believe in Victory.
Honorary consul of the Republic of Moldova
