The Zaporizhzhia Regional Military Administration made a difficult but right decision to organize the work of Dmytro Orlov, mayor of the city of Enerhodar, in Zaporizhzhia in order to ensure the sustainable functioning of the legitimately elected government.
This is reported by the Zaporizhzhia Regional Military Administration.
"The situation in the city is tense because the territory of the city has been under occupation for almost two months. Unbelievable pressure is being exerted on local governments, utility companies’ managers, and school principals. The pressure is increasing every day," Dmytro Orlov, mayor of Energodar, informed.
The relocation of Enerhodar’s mayor to Zaporizhzhia was caused by cases of forced removal of local authorities in the occupied territories. It was over the pressure on the local authorities of the Zaporizhzhia Military Administration that a decision was made on the further work of Dmytro Orlov and his team in Zaporizhzhia.
"Now we see such a trend that the occupiers are beginning to oust and, forcing our government, to cease the existence of municipal institutions, energy supply and life support institutions. We can’t agree to this, so we took measures to keep the city alive," the head of the Zaporizhzhia Regional Military Administration Oleksandr Starukh assured.
The relocation to the regional center will make it possible to run Enerhodar more effectively during martial law. Most organizational processes can be implemented remotely.
Recall that there are 2 largest power plants in Ukraine in Enerhodar — Zaporizhzhia NPP and Zaporizhzhia TPP.
Zaporizhzhia NPP is the largest power facility in Ukraine and the European continent, consisting of 6 power units with a total installed capacity of 6 GW (gross).
Zaporizhzhia TPP is the largest thermal power plant in Ukraine, consisting of 4 coal-fired power units with a total installed capacity of 1.2 GW.
The total load of the stations fluctuates around 7 GW, which provides about 30-35% of the generation of all electricity in Ukraine.
