Mr Wasylyk added that the reserves, once tapped, would “absolutely” meet the needs of Ukraine’s European neighbours. As it looks to become an EU member, it may yet prove itself to be essential to the bloc’s economy.

Naftogaz has reportedly identified large gas reserves in various places, including the Dnipro-Donets rift that splits the country between east and west.
