is to obtain
complete energy independence, especially since the country
possesses all necessary resources for this target.
The Head of Government stressed
during the Government sitting.
remember that until recently the country has
been dependent on Russian energy
sources and we also remember
that it was
used as an
instrument of pressure on Ukraine.
The country has not been
importing Russian gas for 720 days",
stressed the Prime Minister.
The Head of
Government thanked foreign partners not only for
their assistance to Ukraine in
a very difficult 2014 year, but for
their ongoing support. "That’s true that we
import gas from abroad. But
our aim is not to buy, but to
become an energy independent state, and then
to start exporting energy resources, " he underlined.
Volodymyr Groysman emphasized
the implementation of energy efficiency
programs is on agenda, and
the Government pledges readiness to increase the
funding for these programs, as well as
to ensure the formation of
a fair gas price formula.
