Bioenergy is the driver of the Ukrainian economy. In modern conditions, when the consequences of a pandemic lead to the inevitability of the global economic crisis, we must pay attention to those activities that will ensure the stable development of the state.
Energy is a significant share of Ukrainian imports. And today we need to refocus on the resources available in Ukraine.
We spend billions of dollars on fuel when we can create the jobs, which we needed so much, and attract investments.
