Ukraine and Hungary will improve gas trade at the border. Time for Poland

On May 1, 2020, the virtual point of connection of gas systems of Ukraine and Hungary named Bereg will start operating. It will enable the collection of orders for capacity in both directions in one place as required by regulation.
