"Ukraine has enough energy resources. Thanks to the work, in particular of nuclear and thermal generation, we are going through a period of low temperatures smoothly," Energy Minister of Ukraine German Galushchenko said at a briefing, an Ukrinform correspondent reports.
According to him, 650,000 tonnes of coal are expected to arrive in Ukraine by sea, including from the United States, Colombia, and Australia.
The minister added that the current gas reserves in the underground storage facilities exceed 14.5 billion cubic meters, which is enough for the heating season.
"Naftogaz has the necessary resources but imports will be increased if necessary," energy minister Galushchenko concluded.
As of December 21, six ships have already delivered about 400,000 tonnes of coal, including from the United States, Colombia, and Australia, to Ukraine.
