Ukraine has offered to supply Germany with its own surplus electricity as it attempts to ends its dependence on Russian energy imports, reports al-jazeera.com.
Prime Minister Denys Shmyhal told the German news agency Dpa that Ukraine currently exports its electricity to Moldova, Romania, Slovakia and Poland but is willing to expand exports to Germany.
“We have a sufficient amount of electricity in Ukraine thanks to our nuclear power plants,” Shmyhal said, adding that he would be raising the issue during his visit to the German capital next weekend.
He added that an agreement on energy would be beneficial for both sides. “The EU would get more energy and we would get the foreign currency we urgently need,” the prime minister said.
