Ukraine appealed to Russia with a request for technical assistance and the provision of additional supplies of electricity during the peak summer heat, but Russian side refused, Minister of Energy and Coal Industry of Ukraine Igor Nasalik said this, Interfax-Ukraine reports.

"We sought technical assistance from Russia, but we received only a denial", he said at a press conference in Kyiv on Thursday.

Nasalik noted that Ukraine has managed to pass the peak load conditions, despite the termination of deliveries of coal from the uncontrolled territories of Donbas region without electricity imports.

He also stressed that the autumn-winter period, when the power consumption will be lower than in some periods in summer, will also be performed without rolling blackouts.
