KIEV, September 30 (Itar-Tass) —— The issue of lower Russian gas transit tariff in Ukraine has not been raised at negotiations with Russia, Ukrainian Minister of Energy and the Coal Industry Yuri Boiko said on Thursday.
“We have not discussed the gas transit tariff issue at any stage of the negotiations,” he told a news conference.
On Thursday, a Ukrainian delegation held talks in Moscow on the terms of natural gas supplies and transit within the framework agreements reached by Presidents Viktor Yanukovich of Ukraine and Dmitry Medvedev of Russia on September 24.
According to the Ukrainian minister, the implementation of these agreements “will be done quickly since we have been tasked to find a compromise solution acceptable for both states in a very short time, or before the heating season starts.”
Such a compromise solution, he specified, is to be reached “by a next meeting between the two presidents.”
