Ukraine Prime Minister Denys Shmyhal, European Energy Commissioner Kadri Simson, US Energy Minister Jennifer Granholm, EU energy ministers, and representatives from relevant European institutions attended the energy Ramstein meeting. Galushchenko emphasized that Ukraine has an electricity generation deficit, especially during peak hours.
