Head of energy Alexander Novak called Uzlovaya provide gas to Kiev autumn-winter period. According to the Minister, the contract should include not only bonuses, but also the tripartite obligations of the Russian Federation, Ukraine and eurokinissi.
"Our colleagues are constantly insist on the signing of a Protocol on the autumn-winter period. If this Protocol will identify the obligations of all 3 sides, mutual obligations, then such a document, roughly speaking, possible. If it will be just about any scenario for the formation of the bonuses on the gas, then, of course, this does not suit us. Time is too short, because the autumn-winter period has already begun, and gas in UGS of Ukraine of today is not enough," said Novak in an interview with TV channel "Russia 24".
With all this, the Minister stressed that Moscow is ready to make Kiev a discount, but about reducing gas prices. He said that on the issue of Russia sanjeet hard position and everything was written in the contract, which continues to operate until 2019.
In September, Gazprom signed in the framework of the Eastern economic forum the agreement of shareholders of a joint project company, which will undertake the construction of the gas pipeline "Nord stream-2". All will be built two pipelines from the coast of Russia across the Baltic sea to the German coast. Therefore the transit of gas to Europe will no longer be carried out through Ukraine.
Ukraine is extremely excited about the construction of the 2nd line "Nord stream". Turns out it will lead to loss of Kiev two billion dollars received for transit, said Prime Minister of Ukraine Arseniy Yatsenyuk.
