As we reported earlier, Ukraine may start its own gas exports to Europe.
It is reported that Ukrainian underground gas storage facilities have enough reserves for such activities.
"We do not rule out that Ukraine will start its own gas exports to EU countries in case of a favorable situation on the European market. Domestic underground storage facilities today have enough reserves not only to provide heat to Ukrainian citizens but also to receive additional income from gas sales abroad," reads the message.
