Alexander Todiichuk, Naftogaz of Ukraine Deputy CEO, said this initiative had been supported by the Ukrainian Energy and Coal Industry Ministry.

This is a very heavy blow, and politicians are trying to avoid it in view of the elections this autumn as people’s discontent may affect this process,” he said.

On Tuesday, Energy and Coal Industry Minister Yuri Prodan said the country was ready to agree “an interim market price” for gas imported from Russia.

We are trying to find a solution “

The question is what one can expect from the upcoming gas talks between Russia, Ukraine and the EU in Berlin on September 26.

We support the compromises offered by the European Union and we are consulting the EU in order to work out a compromise,” he said.

AceWorldNews – KIEV – April 12 – Naftogaz of Ukraine CEO Andrei Kobolev said there were two ways to solve the gas problem for Ukraine.

One is to make a deal with Russia’s Gazprom and keep the previous price. The other one is to reach an agreement with European companies so that they buy gas from Gazprom and then sell it to Ukraine and make direct payments for gas transit across Ukraine, Kobolev told the Ukrainian newspaper ZN.UA on Saturday, April 12.
