Electricity also went out in the city of Slobozia, some districts of Tiraspol, Ribnita, and Cameanca.
In a few hours, specialists restored the power supply to all lines. Distribution companies must now reconnect consumers.
In the capital of Moldova, the city of Chisinau, there was a traffic jam with 15 trolleybuses due to a power outage.
In the afternoon of May 30, lights went out in Kyiv, Vinnytsia, Odesa, Dnipro and other cities of Ukraine. The reason is an imbalance in the Ukrainian energy system, due to which the automatics interfered and disconnected consumers, reducing consumption. Electricity supply is gradually being restored. In particular, all customers in Kyiv already have electricity.
