Due to the launch of reverse gas deliveries via Slovakia we could have managed to pump up about 11 billion cubic meters of gas, said Prime Minister of Ukraine Arseniy Yatsenyuk at a Gov’t meeting on Wednesday, September 2.

Arseniy Yatsenyuk stressed it had been a year since he and Prime Minister of Slovakia Robert Fico had opened the reverse deliveries of the blue fuel to Ukraine.

The Prime Minister of Ukraine expressed gratitude to the Government of Slovakia and the European partners.

The Head of Government emphasized over the recent month gas volumes in the storages had grown by 1.5 billion cubic meters and made up 14.5 billion cubic meters: “It is insufficient to endure the heating season. To ensure the cold season flawless passing we should accumulate 19 billion cubic meters of gas in our storages".

"Now the Government is looking for additional financial resource to increase purchases of gas," added Arseniy Yatsenyuk.
