It was announced by the Head of the NJSC “Naftogaz of Ukraine” at a press conference on Friday.

Also, the Head of NJSC said that in order to purchase gas to pump into storage facilities if Gazprom stops gas transit from January 1, 2020, it is planned to attract loan funds, but “it will be possible only after the elections”:
