Advisor to the president-elect of Ukraine, former Finance Minister Oleksandr Danyliuk discussed the diversification of energy supplies to Ukraine on a meeting with U.S. Secretary of Energy Rick Perry in Brussels. This is reported by the press service of Zelensky's team on Facebook.

“During the meeting, we talked about attracting investments to increase natural gas production in Ukraine, possible ways of supplying American liquefied natural gas, as well as reforming the gas market in Ukraine, including Naftogaz Company,” the message said.

Danyliuk noted that the role of the United States in diversifying energy supplies is important for Ukraine and Europe as a whole.
