The next Ministerial meeting on gas in Ukraine, Russia, and the EC will take place on 30 June in Vienna, told reporters on Thursday the Minister of energy and coal industry of Ukraine Volodymyr demchyshyn.
He affirmatively answered the question, and in truth whether the meeting will take place on 30 June in Vienna, adding, because it is agreed upon by all participants. However, the Ministry of energy of the Russian Federation refused to clarify the message.
Thus Demchyshyn hoped that before June 30, the Russian side will be determined by the size of the discount on gas for Ukraine after the second quarter.
"in the last few days have created a new position from Vladimir Vladimirovich (Putin), for this reason today I talked with Novak. As far as I am aware, as long as the final decision of principle no. They will discuss it inside until Tuesday and intend to form a final position, " said Demchyshyn.
the head of the Russian Federation Vladimir Putin on Wednesday said that the Russian Federation During such a fall in prices of petroleum products may not give Ukraine still a discount on gas, but the price for Ukraine should not be higher than for neighbouring countries, such as Poland. Putin also said that we should wait for an appeal of the Ukrainian side on this issue. For his part, energy Minister Alexander Novak said that as long as such an official request from Ukraine on providing new discount is missing.
