Europe’s top priority is getting the economy back on track, and ensuring low-cost and stable energy supplies is an essential component. Ukraine holds a vital role in powering Europe by providing reliable access to current sources, exploring new shale and offshore reserves, and helping to transition to renewables.
Closer collaboration between Ukraine and the EU cannot be just an
abstract goal. It will allow Western investors to tap an emerging
market, improve living standards across Europe and strengthen Europe’s
connections with eastern Europe to balance the region’s complex
relationship with Russia.
