UNITED STATES (VOP TODAY NEWS) — Venezuelan authorities are making every effort to restore the disrupted work of the national power supply system within a few hours, Latin American President Nicolas Maduro said on Sunday.
“The national power supply system has undergone numerous cyber attacks, which led to its disruption and prevented attempts to restore it. Nevertheless, we are making great efforts to finally establish a stable power supply over the next few hours,” Maduro wrote in his account Twitter.
The energy collapse in most states of Venezuela occurred on March 7 due to the accident at the country’s largest hydroelectric power plant, El Guri. The National Electricity Corporation (Corpoelec) described the incident as sabotage and an episode of the energy war against Venezuela. Against the background of the largest blackout in history, the security forces of a Latin American country are strengthening security measures.
On the eve of Maduro in connection with the disruption of electricity, he gave the order on Monday to begin providing food to the citizens of the country. Separately, he ordered the provision of assistance to hospitals throughout the country and to guarantee the delivery of drinking water by cisterns to the houses of Venezuelans.
