In order to avoid fuel shortages in Ukraine, it is necessary to import 25-27 thousand tons of gasoline and diesel fuel every day. This statement was made by the head of WOG Holding BV Andrey Pivovarsky, writes today.ua.
He noted that now 15,000 tons of fuel are being imported into our country every day. There is a tendency to increase the import of gasoline and diesel fuel. Moreover, the situation with diesel is better than with gasoline.
The expert predicts that if nothing hurts, then the situation with diesel fuel will stabilize in July. But with gasoline, the situation is worse. Why? Because there is a shortage of A-95 gasoline in the European Union. However, its supplies are gradually increasing.
If earlier fuel was imported to Ukraine through seaports and by rail, now deliveries are made mainly by fuel trucks. Earlier, some experts said that deliveries by fuel trucks are unlikely to be able to satisfy all demand for fuel, so carriers should connect the railway.
Recall that the fuel shortage in Ukraine appeared at the end of April, when Russian invaders intensified shelling of oil depots, refineries and railway infrastructure. The occupiers are still inflicting missile strikes on oil depots and oil refineries.
