The meeting of the regional officials with the Ambassador Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary of the Slovak Republic in Ukraine Juraj Sivacek took place in the Transcarpathian Regional State Administration.
The foreign diplomat stressed that his country fully supports Ukraine in the field of economy and energy. Thus, the reverse supply of gas from Slovakia will increase - this has already been agreed by the prime ministers of the both countries.

According to Sivacek, the cooperation of security forces of the two countries in combating the smuggling of tobacco products gives much better results.
