Ukraine is interested in projects for the supply of liquefied gas and coal from other partner countries, especially the United States, until it offsets the shortage of resources with domestic fossil fuels, said Prime Minister Volodymyr Groysman in an interview with Reuters.
He stressed that the current agenda of the Government incuded achieving full energy independence - for all types of fuel. However, it requires time to accomplish the goal. And as long as all the mechanisms for fulfilling the tasks are being worked out, Ukraine will benefit from proposals of partners, first of all the EU and the U.S., regarding supplies of gas and coal. According to the Head of Government, details of such cooperation were discussed during a recent visit of U.S. Secretary of Energy Rick Perry to Kyiv.
“Liquefied gas is very interesting for Ukraine. We talked about the whole spectrum of our cooperation in the energy sector. As for coal, we will buy it from our international partners until we cover the domestic deficit”, summed up Volodymyr Groysman.
