Ukraine and the European Union agreed on a new route for the supply of natural gas to Ukraine from Croatia through Hungary to the Ukrainian gas storage facilities, energy and coal industry minister Eduard Stavytsky said following his visit to Brussels on Friday.

"We have agreed all issues on a new route, I would say - the Adriatic-Hungarian-Ukrainian corridor - for the supply of natural gas from an LNG terminal on Kirk Peninsula (Croatia) through transport systems of Hungary to our gas storage facilities in Ukraine," the minister said.

He said that the signing of a declaration on establishment of the Adriatic corridor will take place in Kyiv on November 5-6, at the level of the Prime Ministers of Ukraine, Hungary and Croatia.

Stavytsky noted that this is a powerful step towards diversification of energy supply routes and enhancing energy security of the whole Europe.

However, he did not specify the details of this stage of the project.

The minister also thanked European Commissioner for Energy Gunther Oettinger and other European partners for their support in implementing the project.
