Two projects on fair transformation in Chervonohrad and Myrnohrad have been prepared for launch," Energy Minister of Ukraine German Galushchenko said at a briefing, an Ukrinform correspondent reports.

According to the minister, the projects will be implemented with the support of the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development, as well as the governments of Great Britain and Germany.
