This was announced by Naftohaz Ukrainy CEO Andrii Koboliev at the Second Annual Forum of Directors "Orchestrators of Change" in Kyiv, Censor.NET informs referring to Ukrinform.
"I believe we have reached quite a progress in Naftohaz's foreign relations. First of all, we started with tackling current challenges: relations with Gazprom and external debts. As for Gazprom, we have managed to diversify the supplies and started receiving gas from Europe. I think that in 2016, we will be able to completely do without Russian gas, if necessary, the required volume could be reversed from Europe," Koboliev said.
According to him, an important achievement is that Gazprom approaches Kyiv and offers negotiating a price that is acceptable for Ukraine.
However, according to Koboliev, there is another challenge - the construction of Nord Stream, which is a bright example of common sense being overcome by political motives. "Nevertheless, we have a prospect and means to win," the Naftohaz CEO said.
