Ukraine’s energy ministry is considering imposing monthly quotas for imports of diesel fuel and liquefied petroleum gas (LPG) from Russia aiming to reduce dependence from a single supplier.
A local specialized Enkorr news agency published on Wednesday a scanned image of a document in which the ministry proposed limiting imports of Russian diesel fuel to 175,000 tonnes a month and LPG to 50,000 tonnes a month, Reuters reports.
Ministry officials were unavailable for comment and Reuters could not confirm the authenticity of the published document.
Enkorr said Russia exported 259,000 tonnes of diesel fuel and 62,400 tonnes of LPG to Ukraine in May.
According to the reported document, the ministry said quotas could help Ukrainian refineries win market share and reduce fuel consumption.
