President Zelenskiy last week signed the law “On Inland Water Transport,” legislation that opens the Dnipro to foreign flag vessels and allows for the creation of a dedicated fund to rebuild the locks and docks. Artem Kovalev, the Rada member who pushed for the law, has warned: “The river infrastructure is 75% worn out.” With the changes, he predicts, river cargo will triple to 30 million tons a year in 2024, the end of the Zelenskiy presidency. He said this cargo level would generation $500 million in taxes, $625 million in economic activity and 10,000 new jobs.
