KYIV. April 3 (Interfax-Ukraine) – Stabilization of the Ukrainian power system and a certain reserve of capacity make it possible to discuss the issue of opening electricity exports to Europe, Energy Minister Herman Haluschenko has said.

“The issue of opening exports is already on the table today. It is being considered,” the minister said during the United News national telethon on Friday.

At the same time, the minister of energy said that in the event of a shortage of electricity, Ukraine would refuse to export it.

The capacity authorized by the European association for the cooperation of transmission system operators ENTSO-E for export is 400 MW, for import it is 850 MW.
