Ukrainians were warned about the “coldest winter” of the decade

The head of Naftogaz Vitrenko warned about a decrease in the temperature in apartments in winter to 17-18 ° C. The head of Naftogaz of Ukraine, Yuriy Vitrenko, warned Ukrainians that the upcoming winter could be the coldest in a decade.

He stated this in an interview with the British newspaper The Guardian.

He explained that the heating season will begin in the country later, and will end earlier. In addition, the temperature in the apartments will be set four degrees below normal and will be 17-18 degrees Celsius. In this regard, he advised fellow citizens to stock up on blankets and warm clothes in case the temperature outside drops below minus 10 degrees Celsius.

Vitrienko also added that Ukraine will need $ 10 billion to import gas this year. At the same time, he expressed doubt that the country would be able to receive such a volume of funding from Western allies.

Earlier, Prime Minister of Ukraine Denis Shmygal said that the government of Ukraine will allocate about one and a half billion hryvnias (about $ 38 million) for the purchase of a strategic reserve of material reserves to solve problems with heat and water supply in the coming winter.
