Naftogaz called such actions by Gazprom a failure to fulfill the court&#39;s award and blamed the Russian company for gas shortage in Ukraine&#39;s GTS. To overcome the crisis, the Cabinet of Ministers on March 2 introduced a five-day national action plan to prevent a crisis in the energy sector, which provided for a restriction on gas consumption within the country, while Naftogaz made an emergency purchase of 60 million cubic meters from the Polish company PGNiG.

He also stressed that Gazprom would pay "every single penny" under the Stockholm Arbitration&#39;s award. In 2017, Ukraine topped its record of recent years in the volumes of gas transmitted from Russia to the European Union at 93 billion cubic meters.
