The Cabinet of Ministers in 2019 ordered gas supply companies to create an insurance reserve of gas in the amount of 10% of the planned monthly sales volume next month.
The operator of this insurance resource has been assigned to the state company Naftogaz of Ukraine, where gas traders paid for storage of safety stock.
