Norway to allocate about USD 200 million for gas supply to Ukraine
The Norwegian government offers to allocate 2 billion Norwegian kroner (USD 200 million) to help Ukraine meet its gas supply needs until the winter period.
This was announced on the Norwegian government website on Monday, August 29.
"The war has led to the fact that Ukraine needs immediate external support. Ukraine has asked Norway to assume the main role in ensuring access to energy sources. We are monitoring the situation and propose to spend 2 billion kroner on the purchase of gas by Ukrainians in the fall and winter," said Norwegian Prime Minister Jonas Gaar Støre.
