Ukraine will store up 21 billion cubic meters (bcm) of gas by the beginning of the upcoming heating season, Ukrainian Energy and Coal Industry Minister Yuriy Boiko has said.

"We'll have 21bcm of gas at the beginning of the heating season," he told journalists in Kyiv on Wednesday, Sept. 5.

According to him, this figure is the same as last year, but this year Ukraine has 1.5 million tonnes of coal more than last year.
