On November 25, at a government meeting, a decision was made to ban the export of fuel wood.

This was stated by Prime Minister Denys Shmygal.
 
"This will contribute to its accumulation in Ukraine. After all, in many communities, especially front-line ones, wood is now the main resource for heating. Russia's attacks on the energy system only increase its strategic importance," the prime minister explained.
 
He noted that at the same time, the state is working to increase the volume of supplies from abroad of transformers and high-voltage equipment.. According to him, this is necessary for the rapid restoration of the Ukrainian energy network.

Shmyhal said that the EU has launched the Generators of Hope initiative, which will help meet the demand of Ukrainian communities for power generators as quickly as possible.
