Expert tells when Ukraine will stop buying Russian gas
By cutting gas consumption and increasing domestic gas production Ukraine may stop buying the Russian or European gas by 2025, Mykhailo Honchar, president of Strategy XXI center told journalists July 25, Ukrinform reports.
“In 2013, Ukraine consumed about 50 billion cubic meters of gas and 42 billion in 2014. This year, Ukraine is expected to consume 35 billion. If the rate of consumption continues Ukraine may stop buying imported gas in 2025.
The sharp decline in gas consumption in the past years was due to shrinking production, not energy-saving,” the expert said.
