In the post-war period, Ukraine will continue to comply with the call of the European Union to implement the European Green Deal.
" In 2021 Ukraine was among the countries that heeded the EU’s call for implementation of its Green Deal. In our recovery we will continue to follow this," Shmyhal wrote.
According to him, we will prioritise help for nuclear, hydro, solar and wind-energy plants. Fair transformation of coal regions will continue.
The head of government stressed that the energy sector has experienced billions of dollars’ worth of damage. So energy independence for Ukraine is impossible without a significant increase in gas production.
"According to government planning, investment from state-owned and private companies can help to ensure such independence in three to five years," the prime minister added.
