    On November 29, First Deputy Prime Minister - Minister of Economy of Ukraine Yuliia Svyrydenko met in London with the leadership of the Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy of the United Kingdom to discuss practical steps for the energy recovery of Ukraine.

    "The massive missile attacks of the terrorist country on the civilian infrastructure, in particular the disruption of energy systems, makes us look for additional ways to provide Ukraine with electricity necessary for the functioning of most industrial enterprises and household consumers. Today we with our British colleagues are going to focus on practical steps to support the restoration of Ukraine's energy infrastructure, including the repair of power grids, providing the population with LED lamps and other energy efficiency measures," said Yuliia Svyrydenko.

    The Minister of Economy of Ukraine expressed her gratitude to the British Government for the new package of support for our country from the UK, which had announced by the Prime Minister of the United Kingdom Rishi Sunak during his visit to Kyiv on November 19, as well as by the Foreign Secretary of the United Kingdom James Cleverley during his visit to Kyiv on November 25.

    Among other things, the Package will include GBP 3 million to help rebuild Ukraine, including vital infrastructure on the ground.

    "Together with our partners and allies we will overcome all challenges in the energy sector. We will continue to work to ensure Ukraine's energy independence," stressed Yuliia Svyrydenko.
