Minister of Agrarian Policy and Food Mykola Solskyi announced this at a press briefing at the Media Center Ukraine – Ukrinform.
"$50 million - this amount will be spent on a program under which all grain elevators can obtain new power generators for a total sum of up to UAH 5 million, or switch to LPG [ boilers]," the minister said.
Solskyi noted that under this program, the cost of a power generator or a boiler will be partially reimbursed.
The minister added that, in addition to the program to support the energy efficiency of grain elevators, the World Bank has allocated $100 million for the purchase of wheat and corn for the countries of Asia and Africa for 2023.
