Kyiv and Brussels are continuing to work on reducing Ukraine's energy dependence on Russia by ensuring Kyiv can access gas supply from EU countries, European Commission spokesman Joe Hennon has said, Interfax-Ukraine reports.

"The European Commission will continue to provide assistance to Ukraine in the current situation, in particular, to deepen the security of gas supplies. The problem is that Ukraine receives gas from Russia, and since the prices will grow from April 1, we would like to help Ukraine diversify supplies," Hennon said at a press briefing in Brussels on Friday.

In this regard, Hennon noted that the EU was considering reverse gas supplies from Hungary, Poland and Slovakia.

He said that there were no problems with gas supplies via Ukraine to the EU.
