Ukraine will finish the heating season with excess reserves of natural gas in its underground storage facilities. This was announced by the Minister of Energy and Environmental Protection Oleksiy Orzhel during a press conference, Interfax-Ukraine reports.

"100%, we are withdrawing from the heating season with excess reserves. Large reserves are also placed in European gas storage facilities," he said.

According to him, large reserves, transit contract, which was concluded at the end of 2019, and warm winter are drivers of lower gas prices in Europe, which will eventually affect the payments of the country’s end users.

As we reported earlier, the head of the European Commission, Ursula von der Leyen and Russian President Vladimir Putin discussed the issue of gas transit through Ukraine. She wrote about this on her Twitter page.

“Good to meet with Russian President Vladimir Putin in the margins of the Berlin Conference. We spoke about the Ukraine-EU-Russia trilateral gas agreement via Ukraine,” she wrote.
