Naftogaz Praises Ukraine's Plan to Survive Without Russian Gas

The head of Ukraine's state energy company, Naftogaz, said on Friday that legislation proposed by the government could help Ukraine get through the winter without Russian gas by reducing consumption by around 20 percent.

The legislation, which won preliminary approval in parliament, would give the government more control over the country's natural gas distribution network, including managing gas flows irrespective of existing commercial contracts.
