Ukraine constantly keeps contacts with European counterparts to coordinate efforts in the energy sector. With joining efforts a number of important projects have been launched. Prime Minister of Ukraine Volodymyr Groysman said during a meeting with Vice-President of the European Commission for Energy Union Maroš Šefčovič.
"Currently, one of the key issues is the functioning of the Ukrainian GTS, which is a reliable supplier of gas to the EU countries. We are now considering further steps to bring the Ukrainian gas transit system in line with EU standards. There have already been approved decisions that enable the country to prepare the Ukrainian GTS for certification by the 1st of January 2020 in compliance with European laws", the Head of Government said.

During the talks, the top officials discussed practical issues of the partnership between Ukraine and the European Union in the energy sector, in particular, the delivery of natural gas to Ukrainian and European consumers.
Maroš Šefčovič assured that the EU supports Ukraine's endeavors in reforming the energy sector. The Vice-President emphasized that he was pleased with the cooperation with the Ukrainian Government since such interaction yields concrete results.
