PM Groysman: Ukraine has not been buying Russian gas for over 720 days

Ukraine has got rid of gas dependence on Russia and has not been buying Russian gas for more than 720 days. 

"It wasn’t that long ago that we were dependent on the Russian Federation in terms of all the energy resources, which were used as a tool of influence and blackmail. Today, we have been living without Russian gas for more than 720 days already. We thank our international partners, who have supported us after the Revolution of Dignity. We have made a lot of efforts to get rid of this dependence. Now we buy gas abroad, but our task is to become an entirely energy independent country," Ukrainian Prime Minister Volodymyr Groysman said at the Cabinet’s meeting, an Ukrinform correspondent reports.

He expressed conviction that Ukraine haв the needed capacities to extract its own gas, process oil products and develop alternative energy.
