"I have met with representatives of the country's leading television media. Such interaction with journalists helped deeply consider urgent issues without unnecessary emotions. I'm confident that we managed to explain that in the situation with Ryanair there is no room for categorical conclusions... We are resuming negotiations with Ryanair in the format of the [Infrastructure] Ministry, Boryspil Airport and the Ukraine Investment Promotion Office," he wrote.
Riabikin added that he was "unanimous with the prime minister that low-cost companies must come to the Ukrainian market and for this purpose it is necessary to prepare the proper regulatory framework."
As earlier reported, on July 10, Irish low-cost airline Ryanair refused to launch its planned entry into the Ukrainian market as Boryspil Airport failed to fulfill an agreement, which was signed with the Infrastructure Ministry in March this year.
Ukrainian Prime Minister Volodymyr Groysman instructed the Infrastructure Ministry and Boryspil Airport management to resume talks with Ryanair, as well as to involve Daniel Bilak, director of the Ukraine Investment Promotion Office, in the negotiation process.
