Energy Minister Nasalyk: Ukraine didn’t import electricity from Russia in 2016

In 2016, Ukraine didn’t import electricity from the Russian Federation.

Energy and Coal Industry Minister Ihor Nasalyk said this during Svoboda Slova talk show on ICTV, an Ukrinform correspondent reports.

“2016 was the first year when we stopped imports of Russian electricity. Moreover, when we had a critical situation, in May, and we wanted to import – as an agreement on emergency aid is being developed among all the neighbors and it is like a requirement = we were denied,” he said.

The minister also noted that the issue on electricity imports from Russia must not even be considered.

“I’m sure this will not happen. We will do everything to refuse from this position,” Nasalyk said.
