The key task for the Government is to refuse from the imported gas because of the opening of the access to the Ukrainian resources. This was stated by Prime Minister of Ukraine on air of the Priamy (Direct) TV channel.
The PM explained that the state company UkrGasVydobuvannya produces about 15 billion cubic meters of gas, another 5 billion cubic meters are produced by private companies. "And we consume 32 billion cubic meters (per year). So, we need to extract at least 11 billion cubic meters more to provide ourselves with own gas production", Volodymyr Groysman said.
