The United States Department of Energy is sending an expert delegation to Ukraine to help develop a winter action plan to address critical needs during the 2019-2020 heating season.

“This team will help to provide the Zelensky administration with the necessary resources so that Ukraine is no longer vulnerable to threats from interruptions in energy supply from Russia,” the U.S. Embassy stated.

The delegation will work with Ukrainian experts to assess the interdependence in the production, transmission, and distribution of energy in all sectors, and will also create the basis for improving a coordinated response to energy shortages.

U.S. Secretary of Energy Rick Perry met with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky shortly after Zelensky took office and assured the United States’s readiness to help Ukraine develop its energy sector.

At a meeting with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky in Warsaw, U.S. Vice President Mike Pence also said the United States would continue to support Ukraine.

President Donald Trump has seemed less supportive of Ukraine than his government however, throwing a wrench in congressional plans to deliver aid to Ukraine.
