US to provide $53M for Ukraine's electrical system

The United States will provide Ukraine with aid worth $53 million to support the conflict-struck country's electrical system, the State Department said in a note it sent to media outlets on Tuesday.

According to the statement, the funds will be used for "the acquisition of critical electricity grid equipment," including "distribution transformers, circuit breakers, surge arresters, disconnectors, vehicles and other key equipment."

The announcement came amid power and heat cuts Ukraine has been facing recently, for which Kiev and the West accused Russia.
