    • To prepare for power outages due to the repair of energy units, Ukrenergo and ENTSO-E are constantly increasing technical capacity for importing electricity to Ukraine.
    • The Cabinet of Ministers has not yet raised energy tariffs for the population.
    • The Energy Strategy until 2050 was adopted, but its text was classified.
    • Last month was difficult for exports due to further problems with the Black Sea Grain Initiative, bans on agricultural imports by Poland and several other neighbouring countries, and transit problems.
    • In April, Ukraine received a record amount of international financial support, which helped the National Bank to reach a new high in international reserves.
    • Inflation has fallen below 20% yoy for the first time since June 2022.
