The USA has urged Ukraine to find an alternative to the Russian gas — Rambler News Service


Photo: globallookpress.com/Str Ukraine has to look for alternative sources of supply of energy resources to be exempted from dependence on supply of natural gas from Russia, the adviser to the U.S. President for national security John Bolton following the results of a meeting with the president of Ukraine Petro Poroshenko has said. He has noted that he has held an interesting conversation with the prime minister of Ukraine Vladimir Groysman on power and measures which can be accepted in the future in this sphere. "One of concerns of the president Trump concerning "Nord Stream-2" consists in why Europe ties itself to the Russian energy carriers voluntarily even more? Therefore for Ukraine and other countries one of alternatives - to look for other sources of natural gas" — Bolton whose words are cited by the UNIAN has told. At the same time he has noted that such sources of supply of energy resources exist, in particular, from Azerbaijan and East Mediterranean. At the same time Trump's adviser has declared the capacity of the USA to deliver the liquefied gas to Europe. At the same time he has paid attention that Ukraine can develop own sources, extracts own gas that "approximately corresponds to the level of annual consumption by households". "There can be American or other international companies which, perhaps, will become interested in exploration and production in Ukraine. Thus, it is possible" — Bolton has noted. As it was reported earlier, Ukraine has suspended purchases of the Russian gas since November 25, 2015. Now the country buys gas on a reverse from Slovakia, Hungary and Poland. Also pumping gas in UGS is carried out due to own production.
