Ukraine will receive transformers and solar panels from Japanese partners in the near future. This was discussed during a meeting between Deputy Energy Ministers Yaroslav Demchenkov and Svitlana Hrynchuk and representatives of the Japan International Cooperation Agency (JICA), headed by JICA Vice President Ando Naoki.
Mr. Naoki assured that Japan will continue to support the Ukrainian energy sector and announced the supply of transformers and solar panels to Ukraine in the coming months.
Yaroslav Demchenkov thanked the Japanese side for the support provided to the Ukrainian energy sector and stressed its importance for getting through the winter in the face of hostile attacks on energy infrastructure.
Svitlana Hrynchuk noted that Ukraine is interested in deepening cooperation with the agency to strengthen the physical protection of energy facilities. The Deputy Minister also invited JICA representatives to join the AidEnergy electronic system, which allows them to learn about the current needs of Ukrainian energy companies online and provide prompt assistance.
Ando Naoki emphasized that energy security is very important, and about 40% of the assistance provided by the Japanese side to Ukraine is to support the country's energy sector.
