“Gas TSO of Ukraine and Ukrenergo held a joint strategic session on planning the long-term development of Ukraine’s gas transmission (GTS) and united energy systems (UESU). The companies agreed on further bilateral cooperation to effectively integrate both systems and develop energy infrastructure in Ukraine,” reads the statement.
