The Ukrainian energy sector has been transformed and liberalized in depth since 2014. The government has canceled the illegal plans, leading to the transition from large budget deficits to healthy profits from the state gas company, Naftogaz. Steps are also being taken to boost Ukraine's domestic energy production and increase gas extraction as part of efforts to reduce the country's dependence on energy supplies from Russia - a dependence that previously made Ukraine particularly vulnerable to extortion by Russia.

Privatization and management of state-owned enterprises (SOEs)

There are more than 3,600 state-owned enterprises that are mostly losing money in Ukraine. 40% of these companies are inactive and only operate on paper. Every third institution incurred a loss and is a potential source of financial risk. The operations of SOEs are a source of corruption risks and cause losses in the state budget due to the lack of quality control mechanisms and insufficient transparency.

Reform of SOEs includes introducing transparent corporate governance in strategic SOEs and privatizing all other companies.


In 2018, the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine adopted a new privatization bill. The law divides companies into three categories: those to be privatized, liquidated, or retained. The new law replaces many often contradictory regulations, cuts the schedule for privatization, and makes Prozorro's online system mandatory for the privatization of small state-owned enterprises.

Corporate governance

The modern SOE governance model includes introducing OECD-compatible corporate governance tools, including strategic planning, having the government as shareholder agree on ownership policies for each institution, and competitive appointment of independent supervisory boards.

The government has already approved independent professional oversight boards in a number of strategic SOEs, including:

  • Naftogaz (state gas company)
  • Ukrzaliznytsia (Ukrainian Railways)
  • Ukrposhta (Post Office)
  • Ukrenergo (Power Network Operator)

Ukraine is one of the few countries with a full-cycle capacity for design, production and operation of civil and military aircraft and aircraft shipment, as well as space technology. The Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine passed Law No. 1071 amending some laws of Ukraine involving the development of activities in space and the attraction of investments. The bill brings competition to the sector by allowing private companies to participate in space-related activities, including rocket launches.
