Ukraine has started growing again in the past year. Blockades of transport links threaten this progress, and the energy security of millions of citizens. We urge all parties involved to look to the common good, and unblock railways and roads for legitimate trade. We also call upon the Ukrainian Authorities to set out a transparent and accountable framework for energy supplies and to reinforce confidence that public utilities are being operated for public benefit. More importantly, the government needs to modernize plants and undertake critical reforms to ensure long-term security of the nation’s energy supply.
