KIEV, February 6. /TASS/. Thanks to the electricity imported from Russia, Kiev managed to settle the country's misbalanced energy system, Ukraine’s Minister of Energy and Coal Industry Vladimir Demchishin told the parliament on Friday.
He said earlier the Ukrinterenergo Company had signed an agreement on import at a "very adequate price".
"As of today, without import, the misbalance, as the temperatures are slightly lower and the consumption has been growing, is one gigawatt, or 1,000 megawatts. If we did not have the opportunity to receive that 1,000 megawatts, we would have stopped the industry; we saw that in December," the minister said.
All claims the agreement’s terms are bad are groundless, he said.
