VYBORG, Leningrad region, September 6 (Itar-Tass) —— Russia exports its gas to Ukraine at prices that are lower than those for a number of other European countries, Alexei Miller, the CEO of Russia’s gas giant Gazprom, said on Tuesday.
“Gas prices for Ukraine are lower than for such countries as Poland, Hungary, Turkey, and Romania,” he said. “Generally speaking, it looks like our Ukrainian partners have taken a cheap-Russia-gas train and have no idea where to get off; it may take them very far if not to a dead end.”
According to Miller, tariffs for Russian gas transit in Ukraine are much higher than in such countries as Germany, Poland, the Czech Republic and Slovakia.
“The Ukrainian president is misinformed about tariffs for the transit of Russian gas via the republic and about gas prices for Ukrainian consumers,” the Gazprom CEO noted.
Miller visited Portovaya compressor station in the Leningrad region, where he attended a ceremony of launching the process of filling the first phase of the Nord Stream pipeline with technological gas.
