  • Employing Foreign Specialists in Ukraine – Rules of the Game Have Been Simplified?

    Following the strategy of the Government to improve the doing business climate in Ukraine, Parliament adopted the Law of Ukraine “On Amendments to Certain Legislative Acts of Ukraine Concerning Elimination of Barriers for Foreign Investments Attraction” dated May 23, 2017 (hereinafter – “the Law”), which came into force on September 27, 2017.  The Law with such an expressive name should have definitely removed the barriers for employment of foreigners, but what have we actually received? Putting the cart before the horse, the Law really significantly changed the procedure of obtaining work permits (hereinafter – “the Permit”) facilitating it essentially from the one hand, but introducing some questionable conditions from the other.

    Over the last few months before January 2018, when the latest changes to the power purchase agreements (PPAs) between State Enterprise “Energorynok” and producers of energy from alternative sources were adopted, more than ten agreements were signed with upgraded conditions set earlier in 2017. In the mentioned agreements, the changes to the PPAs were applied and helped bring Ukraine’s PPAs closer to international standards. Nevertheless, the revised PPAs still have a lot of issues that need to be clarified and further elaborated to make them perfectly bankable, and to make them properly executable.
