Ukraine lacks complex reforms, however, it has made a lot of progress when it comes to refusing from Russian gas, Head of Reform Support Group Leszek Balcerowicz stated at the National Reforms Council, aired by ‘112 Ukraine’.

‘Ukraine’s rates of reduction of Russian gas import are the highest in Europe. I remember, several years ago it amounted to 45 million cubic meters, this year, as far as I know, it dropped almost to zero. It’s huge progress’, - Balcerowicz said.

According to State Statistics Service, Ukraine imported 2,646 billion cubic meters of gas in January-April 2016 from France, Austria, Poland and Germany.

No gas was imported from Russia in this period.
