This could happen as early as summer 2022.
Ukraine will get access to liquefied gas terminals in Poland and Lithuania.
Serhiy Makogon, Director of the Gas Transmission System Operator of Ukraine, announced this on his Facebook page .
He said that today the GIPL (Gas Interconnection Poland – Lithuania) gas pipeline, connecting Poland and Lithuania, has been launched.
“This is a significant breakthrough in the energy security of the entire region. It will be much more difficult for Gazprom to blackmail these countries with gas,” Makogon said.
According to him, Ukraine will be able to access LNG terminals in Klapeda in the summer of 2022.
“In the coming days, a tanker with a cargo of liquefied LNG for Poland will arrive at the LNG terminal in Klapeda. And after the completion of the Poland-Slovakia interconnector this summer, Ukraine will also receive LNG terminals in Poland and the Baltic countries,” he said.
Earlier, Polish Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki announced the country’s withdrawal from any form of dependence on Russia .
