European Union wants energy independence for Ukraine: EU’s chief executive

European Union is looking into a strategic natural gas reserve but the long-term goal is energy independence for both the bloc and Ukraine, the EU’s chief executive said on Tuesday. Slovakia is also willing to secure gas supply for Ukraine.

“Gas supply security would include a reverse flow if necessary from the European Union, for instance, Slovakia, which is willing to step up,” European Commission President Ursula von der Leyen told a news conference alongside Ukraine’s president, adding that another option was a strategic reserve. "Overall, what we are working on together ... is independence; energy independence is vital for Ukraine and for the European Union," she said, calling for more investment in renewable energy.

The European Union–Ukraine Association Agreement is a European Union Association Agreement between the European Union, Euratom, Ukraine and the EU's 28 member states at the time. It establishes a political and economic association between the parties.
