Yesterday, on January 7, "Gazprom" completely stopped transit of natural gas to the European consumers through the territory of Ukraine. It means that the Russian gas to Ukraine doesn't arrive in general. Meanwhile, the winter, this year, was rather severe - unlike two previous. Naturally, today all are disturbed, first of all, by one question: Whether "It will be warm in houses? ". With this question we addressed to the head of the Nikolaev regional state administration Alexey Garkushe.
The governor told that in the territory of the Nikolaev area isn't available neither gas storages, nor gas wells - we completely depend on deliveries from the outside.
"Therefore, I think, in area won't be worse and it isn't better than in any other region of the country", - Alexey Garkusha in telephone conversation with our correspondent declared.
Yesterday, on January 6, the Ministry of housing and communal services suggested regions to take in a short time necessary measures for preparation and transfer of all heatgenerating enterprises having such opportunity, for work on a reserve type of fuel - fuel oil. According to the mayor of Nikolaev Vladimir Chaika, on JSC Nikolayevteplooblenergo of fuel oil will suffice exactly for one days.
In turn, the governor noted that in area always before a heating season the fuel reserve is created.
"We always before a heating season create a reserve of alternative types of fuel... But the situation is very strongly heated... Therefore, dependence on supply of gas, undoubtedly, remains anyway", - Alexey Garkusha told.
We will remind that, according to the Ukrainian hydrometeocenter, in the next days in the city of Nikolaev and in the territory of the Nikolaev area mainly clear and cold weather - to a minus 10 and is expected below.
