The Cabinet of Ministers transferred 172 gas stations of the Glusco network to state oil and gas monopoly Naftogaz on May 13. "The assets of Russia and related companies in Ukraine should pass to our state and work for the benefit of our country and all Ukrainians," Prime Minister Denys Shmyhal said.
