25 of them were delivered in December 2022, 237 were shipped on January 14, 2023.

According to the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Japan, due to "the destruction of infrastructure in Ukraine, large-scale power outages occur everywhere", therefore it was decided "to put 262 generators to protect the lives of the Ukrainian people experiencing a hard cold winter".

All equipment will be transferred to enterprises responsible for electricity, heat and gas supply to continue energy work, the Foreign Ministry said. In the middle of the month, Ukrainian Prime Minister Denis Shmygal stated that the authorities intend to purchase energy equipment worth over 100 million euros.

Before that, Tokyo sent generators for the Chernihiv region.
