"Currently, there are over 16.4 billion cubic meters of gas in the Ukrainian gas storage facilities. It is generally enough to survive the heating season with the supplies from the European Union. Therefore, we have no gas dependence on Russia," the Minister said. As reported, on November 23, Alexei Miller CEO of Russian gas monopolist Gazprom told journalists that the Russian Federation had not received pre-payments from Naftogaz of Ukraine and threatened to cut off gas supplies two days later. November 25, Prime Minister of Ukraine Arseniy Yatsenyuk ordered to stop buying gas from Russia.
