Turkmenistan was one of the first countries to assist Uzbekistan in restoring electricity supply after a powerful blackout, which happened at once in three Central Asian countries. This was reported by the regional media in the Ministry of Energy of Uzbekistan. Turkmenistan has helped its neighbor restore electricity in the cities of Bukhara and Kashkadarya region. Kyrgyzstan has also partially assisted Uzbekistan in restoring electricity supply in the Fergana Valley.
A massive power outage occurred in Kyrgyzstan, Kazakhstan and Uzbekistan on January 25. This has led to disruptions in water supply, shutdowns at airports and the metro, and traffic accidents due to traffic lights being turned off in dozens of cities in Central Asia.
In all three countries, the situation is stabilizing - in an emergency, they have switched to autonomous work, leaving the system unified. Tajikistan and Turkmenistan have not been affected by the accident - they have long since withdrawn from the 1997 energy ring and did not join it in 2019.
