Moldova and Ukraine are now connected to the European electricity grid.
Statement from the EU:
Today, the electricity grids of Ukraine and Moldova have been successfully synchronised with the Continental European Grid. This will help Ukraine to keep their electricity system stable, homes warm and lights on during these dark times. It is also a historic milestone for the EU-Ukraine relationship – in this area, Ukraine is now part of Europe.
To repeat the last 6 words: “Ukraine is now part of Europe.” Those words could give a psychological boost to be just a little closer now to the EU.
