Prime Minister of Ukraine Arseniy Yatsenyuk has stressed the need to urgently adopt a new energy strategy of Ukraine at a meeting of the Ministry of Energy and Coal Industry of Ukraine on Tuesday, July 7.

"Unfortunately, the Ministry of Energy and Coal Industry has not introduced an energy strategy yet," he said.

Arseniy Yatsenyuk reminded that one energy strategy was adopted in 2006 and was severely criticized": "Then, it was amended in 2013, but it didn’t become better."

The Prime Minister has informed that he once again submits to the Ministry a "New energy strategy of Ukraine until 2020: safety, efficiency and competition." This strategy has been developed by the Razumkov Centre jointly with the World Bank, the IMF, EBRD, European energy community, the Energy Charter and U.S. organizations– "that is, with all those who know which strategy is important for Ukraine".

Arseniy Yatsenyuk appealed to Minister of Energy and Coal Industry of Ukraine Volodymyr Demchyshyn to work out this strategy, "by adding what he believes important in order to urgently approve the strategy by a decision of the Government of Ukraine."
