"In five years – from 2016 through 2020 – we would be able to pass to the position of halting imports of gas from territories of other states. I am convinced in this," he said at the Energy Spring 2016 congress in Kyiv on Thursday.

The minister anticipates that the measures introduced and proposed by the ministry would allow boosting gas production by 7-7.5 billion a year over this period.
