Herman Halushchenko appointed Ukraine’s Minister of Energy

Upon recommendation of Ukraine’s Prime Minister Denys Shmygal, the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine appointed Herman Halushchenko, Vice President of Energoatom, the state enterprise operating all four nuclear power stations in Ukraine, as Minister of Energy.

Mr Halushchenko started his first working meeting with the heads of structural units of the Ministry, defining the priority tasks in brief.

“The constant change of management has negatively affected the state of the entire industry,” the newly appointed minister said. “It’s of the utmost importance for us to solve these problems today, moreover, we need to move very fast.”

He stressed that it is already necessary to work to ensure that the country undergoes the next autumn-winter period without the spectre of rolling blackouts.

“Currently, our crucial task is to stabilize the power system,” Mr Halushchenko added.

The second issue on the agenda, the minister is convinced, should be the adoption of an effective PSO model, enabling to provide the general public with affordable electricity, while not depriving energy generating companies of income.
