krainian residents have faced mandatory blackouts from their own country and sudden power outages from Russian missile strikes during the ongoing war that's in its 12th month. These residents could now face higher electricity costs despite not have much electricity at all.

Axar.az reports that Ukraine General Director of energy supplier Yasno Serhii Kovalenko wrote on Facebook yesterday that rising costs for his country's residents could likely increase. In his social media post he answered the most common question of: "If there is almost no supply, why do I say that consumption has not decreased/why payments have increased?"

"First of all: it is a matter of delayed or increased consumption of electricity after the supply is restored... Therefore at the end of the month, it turns out that the customer used the same amount of electricity as in the periods when blackouts were not applied," Kovalenko wrote.
