ST. PETERSBURG, October 7. /TASS/. Ukraine will not manage to fill its storage facilities with sufficient gas ahead of the winter, the chief executive of Russian energy giant Gazprom said on Friday.
“Ukraine will be unable to pump the necessary amount of gas before the start of gas storage withdrawals,” Gazprom Chief Executive Alexei Miller said at the St. Petersburg International Economic Forum.
“It needs 18 billion cubic metres, or even better 20 billion. Everyone understands certainly that it won't happen. It's an accomplished fact,” Miller said, adding that risks remained in Ukraine if a cold snap pushed up demand.
“The winter is forecast to be cold,” he added.
