KIEV, August 30 (Itar-Tass) — Ukraine in the coming years will reduce the import of Russian gas by two thirds, Prime Minister Nikolai Azarov said at a meeting with administrative officials and economic managers of the Kharkov Region.

"Over the next few years we shall have to reduce the purchases of Russian gas by 30 percent," said Azarov.

For Ukraine it is currently cheaper to use coal for heating.

"We remember the time when we were shifting our boilers from coal to gas, and now we have gas for 400 dollars per one thousand cubic meters, and our partners say that it can get more expensive. We have no other choice – we shall have to start using what we have ... Once we have set a task to ourselves, we shall cope with it," said Azarov.
