KIEV, November 26. /TASS/. The question of natural gas supplies from Russia will be resolved in the near future, Energy and Coal Industry Minister Yury Prodan has told the media.
“I believe that this year there will be gas supplies from Russia. A rather serious drop in air temperatures is due, so more than 100 million cubic meters will be taken out of the underground storages. I believe that the question of supplies will be resolved in the near future,” Prodan said.
Asked about the date when supplies might begin he speculated that supplies of gas from Russia would be quite possible in December.
As it was stated earlier, Ukraine plans to import up to 1.5 billion cubic meters of natural gas by the end of this year.
