U.S. to help Poland, Ukraine disconnect from Russian gas

WARSAW, Aug 31 (Reuters) - The United States, Poland and Ukraine agreed on Saturday to enhance cooperation over secure gas supplies in the region which still relies on deliveries from Russia.

“We’re helping Poland to reduce its dependence on Russian gas,” U.S. Energy Secretary Rick Perry told a news conference in Warsaw after meeting officials from Poland and Ukraine.

The Polish government official responsible for energy infrastructure, Piotr Naimski said Poland, which has increased purchases of liquefied natural gas (LNG) from the United States in the recent years, will be able to send 6 billion cubic metres of gas to Ukraine starting from 2021.
