Summary
In October 2009, the Ukrainian public interest organization Environment-People-Law (EPL) filed suit against the government, seeking to compel the dissemination of information on international greenhouse gas emissions trading. EPL specifically seeks information regarding an agreement between Ukraine and Japan, where the Japanese government agreed to buy 30 million tons of carbon offsets from the Ukrainian government.
