"Based on the dynamics of market economy, market gas prices, and economic situation in Ukraine, it is obvious that the gas price will not go down. That's why we need to look for an alternative, a cheaper alternative, and Ukraine in general needs to sharply reduce gas consumption, making it a national idea. Reducing gas consumption is a step toward energy independence," the official noted.
