This year’s heating season should be covered from domestic
reserves and with the help of the LNG terminal in the Netherlands.
According to the Ministry, significant macroeconomic impacts of
being cut off from Russian natural gas could be expected only at the
beginning of the 2023/2024 heating season. Without gas and other
substitutes, real GDP would drop 2.9% in 2023 and 1.6% in 2024.
