Ukraine Gets Overhaul Loan

KIEV — Two European investment banks have pledged to lend Ukraine $308 million to upgrade its ailing natural gas transport and storage system.

The European Bank for Reconstruction and Development together with the European Investment Bank promised Tuesday to fund the modernization project if Ukraine pushes ahead with reforms of its troubled gas sector.

The Ukrainian government must cut subsidies to households for heating and hot water and improve management at state energy firm Naftogaz. Naftogaz is also obliged to contribute 141 million euros ($200 million) for the project.


… we have a small favor to ask. As you may have heard, The Moscow Times, an independent news source for over 30 years, has been unjustly branded as a "foreign agent" by the Russian government. This blatant attempt to silence our voice is a direct assault on the integrity of journalism and the values we hold dear.

We, the journalists of The Moscow Times, refuse to be silenced. Our commitment to providing accurate and unbiased reporting on Russia remains unshaken. But we need your help to continue our critical mission.
