"We'll be purchasing it for foreign currency now," he said. "The source countries are the U.S. or Australia or South Africa. That's very, very serious," TASS reported.

Groysman pointed out the important efforts taken by the cabinet of his predecessor, Arseny Yatsenyuk, and said his cabinet carried on their cause.

"We're living without a droplet of Russian (natural) gas for 500 days already," he said. "We've chosen the path of retrieving Ukrainian natural gas from our own deposits and I think we'll boost production of our gas by more than half a billion cubic meters this year."

"In practical terms, this means we'll reduce purchases of gas for hard currency by 0.5 billion cubic meters and this stands for our independence in the energy sector," Groysman said.
