Ukraine offers Germany nuclear power

Ukraine wants to offer Germany electricity produced in its nuclear power plants, and thus help the country on its way from dependence on supplies of Russian energy raw materials. Ukrainian Prime Minister Denys Shmyhal said this before his trip to Berlin.

Ukraine now supplies electricity to Moldova, Romania, Poland and Slovakia. “But we are ready to expand exports to Germany as well,” said the Ukrainian prime minister, adding that his country has enough electricity thanks to its nuclear power plants. He will discuss this matter with German Chancellor Olaf Scholz on Sunday.

At the start of Russia’s invasion of Ukraine, the country and neighboring Moldova disconnected from the Russian electricity grid, then synchronized with the European grid in mid-March. Since then, 400 to 700 megawatts have been flowing into Moldova and the European Union every day.

However, Shmyhal now wants to significantly increase the export of electricity. “It would be good for both sides. The EU would get more energy and we would get foreign currency, which we urgently need,” he said.
