According to the ministry, over the past few weeks, Ukraine has experienced a shortage of liquefied gas. Among the reasons are the restrictions on the part of Russia, which led to a decrease in LNG imports to Ukraine, the ministry said.

Currently, Ukrainian producers of liquefied gas, which include Ukrnafta, Ukrgazvydobuvannya, and private companies, cover no more than 20 percent of the market needs.

The remaining amount of gas Ukraine imports from Belarus and Kazakhstan, also other countries.
