The Flemish government of Belgium presented Lutsk with four powerful diesel generators that are extremely difficult to obtain even in Europe due to high demand. Andryus Kubilyus, Member of the European Parliament, and the founder of the international network United for Ukraine, the National Interests Advocacy Network “ANTS” made this possible.
“ANTS,” along with Andryus Kubilyus, demonstrated the situation to the partners and highlighted the critical needs of the city’s social infrastructure to ensure uninterrupted power supply.
“Representatives of the European Parliament, led by Andryus Kubilius, visited Lutsk at the end of October to inspect the energy facility, which was destroyed by russian occupiers’ shelling. We have demonstrated the magnitude of what is currently taking place in Ukraine. The MEPs saw that Ukraine’s destruction goes beyond any rules of war; it is genocide against the Ukrainian people. That is why European legislators responded to the request for such powerful generators,”- Yuliya Vusenko, an ANTS expert, explained.
To strengthen the operation of the wells in the event of a power outage, a 220 kW generator has already been installed at the “Lutskvodokan” KP. The remaining units will be placed in the city clinical hospital and boiler house.
Lutsk Mayor Ihor Polishchuk thanked the National Interests Advocacy Network “ANTS”, international relations expert Kateryna Musienko, deputy Oleksandr Lazuka, founder of the international network United for Ukraine, Member of the European Parliament Andryus Kubilyus, and dependable long-time friend of Ukraine, Senator of the Senate of the Kingdom of Belgium Mark Demesmaeker, for their visits to Ukraine, particularly Lutsk.
It should be noted that almost half a thousand generators were delivered to 30 communities from 10 regions of Ukraine also thanks to the joint initiative of the National Interests Advocacy Network “ANTS” and the French organization “Stand with Ukraine”, which is called “Light through Winter”.
