    After going through emergency gas shortage this winter, Ukraine should pursue higher energy independence

    The late February was marked by the victory celebration at the Ukrainian gas market as Ukrainian Naftogaz won the case on gas transit against the Russian Gazprom at the Stockholm Arbitrage Court. Together with almost USD 2 bn that the Naftogaz owes the Gazprom in the gas case, the Naftogaz net win is USD 2.6 bn. However, already on March 1, 2018, Russia used the same tactic against Ukraine as it did in 2009, namely refusing to supply gas to Ukraine. What necessary steps Ukraine should take to protect itself from political gas emergencies?

    The Agriculture Knowledge and Information System in Ukraine - Call for Reforms

    Policy paper presents results of the analysis of the Ukrainian higher education and research system in agricultural economics. We consider a modern Agricultural Knowledge and Information System as a crucial element for a modern agriculture and food sector. Investment in people pays high dividends. However, such investments only lead to the desired results if the incentives in the system would stimulate quality, young people, performance, cost-effectiveness, international orientation and competition. In Ukraine the system is changing too slowly with too little incentives to become world-class.
