“It is important that the challenges that our country is facing today, especially in terms of its national energy security, get global recognition and involvement. I am proud that Ukraine has demonstrated to other countries that energy independence is a reality. We at Burisma Group could not be more thrilled to get acknowledged again as Ukraine’s leading gas producer. At the same time, the country still needs investment to increase domestic production of natural gas.  And our goal here is to share with foreign investors the objective picture of what is happening in the country”, says the Adviser to the Board of Directors at Burisma Group Vadym Pozharskyi.
