However, Naftogaz insists that in his application indicates other GIS. Gazprom has focused on the fact that the gas flow through GIS "Prokhorovka" and "Platoo" does not contradict the long-term contract "Gazprom" and "Naftogaz" from 2009, which means, to pay for these supplies need to " Naftogaz ".
