"We declare full cooperation in restoring reliable electricity supplies" to Ukrainian households and businesses, Dąbrowski said, as quoted by Poland's energetyka24.com website.

On Sunday, Lithuania's Defence Minister Arvydas Anušauskas announced that his country would provide EUR 2 million worth of new assistance to Ukraine to help rebuild energy infrastructure damaged by Russian missile and drone attacks.

Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky has warned that Russia is planning more attacks on his country this week, appealing to defence forces and citizens to be prepared to endure a new wave of air strikes on energy infrastructure amid freezing temperatures.

Zelensky last week urged the United Nations Security Council to act against Russia over air strikes on civilian infrastructure that have led to massive power cuts and deprived residents of heat and water in cities across Ukraine, news agencies have reported.

Monday is day 278 of Russia'war on Ukraine.
