This can be explained, inter alia, by the favorable geographical conditions in Ukraine, where solar radiation is more intense than, for example, in Germany.

Moreover, Ukraine has a huge potential in electricity production from biogas, which, in some cases, is already partially being successfully implemented.

The new currency control system will be launched on 7 February 2019, the same day as the Law of Ukraine On Currency and Exchange Transactions becomes applicable.

The Law of Ukraine On the Limited Liability Companies and Additional Liability Companies passed on 6 February 2018 shall come into force on 17 June 2018. The Law is a positive sign for doing business in Ukraine as it introduces significant changes and innovations in the legal regulation of the establishment and activities of limited liability companies, which are the most numerous and the most popular form of entrepreneurial activity in Ukraine (second only to individual entrepreneurs).

Prior to the the new Law adoption, the limited liability companies’ activities were regulated by the Law of Ukraine On Business Entities, adopted in 1991 (with many subsequent amendments) and which stopped meeting the facts of life, preventing limited liability companies’ shareholders from handling the issues of corporate relationships between them easily.
