Prime Minister Yulia Tymoshenko believes that Ukraine can consume half of natural gas today replacing it with alternative energy sources. She disclosed this at a special sitting of the Government, devoted to the issues on attracting investments to the economy of Ukraine, Cabinet's press office reported.

“The volumes of alternative sources of Ukraine are just unique. We can calmly replace half of natural gas which we consume, with other energy sources and we do not need to purchase, to be dependent on other countries,” Yulia Tymoshenko stressed.

The Head of Government also said that alternative sources in the fuel-energy balance of Ukraine amount to 0.83 % at present, at that time when, for example, in Austria and Sweden – 24%, Portugal – 17%, Germany -12%, Denmark – 10%. “At present, when our common team of executive power at the central and regional levels begins objectively to tackle alternative energy sources, our balance is “0”. In other words, we begin a new page,” Yulia Tymoshenko noted. But, according to her, the Government will step by step use all possible potential which the country has today.
