Vice Prime Minister of Ukraine Volodymyr Kistion stated this during the II Ukrainian Gas Investment Forum, an Ukrinform correspondent reported.
“We haven’t purchased Russian gas for 482 days. However, a share of imported gas is still relatively high, around 40%. The Ukrainian gas industry is facing a problem - to increase the production by at least 35% as soon as possible, until 2020,” Kistion said.
The vice prime minister also stressed that Government, Parliament and gas companies should work jointly to achieve this.
