Ukraine in 2010 cut export of electric energy to the European countries by 59.4 percent against 2009 to 1.173 billion kWh, the Ukrainian Energy and Coal Industry Ministry said in a statement on Thursday.

The statement said Ukraine in 2010 did not export electric energy to Poland, whereas in 2009 the volume of such supplies amounted to 201.5 million kWh.

In 2010, Ukraine's energy generating companies and electric stations produced 67.6 billion kWh of electric energy that is 7.7 percent up against the previous year.

However, the Ukraine's electricity export grew 2.7 percent in 2010 due to increased export to Belarus with 69.7 percent of the total exported electricity.

Ukraine had also increased exports to Moldova and Russia.
