KIEV, January 29 (Itar-Tass) – Ukrainian President Viktor Yanukovich will visit Turkmenistan in February to have negotiations over the resumption of direct gas supplies, Ukrainian Foreign Minister Leonid Kozhara said live on the local television on Monday evening.
“Ukraine will begin to buy the natural gas directly in Turkmenistan sooner or later. We are one of the largest trade partners of Turkmenistan, our companies particularly do the construction works worth of one billion dollars in that country every year,” the minister said.
Ukraine purchased 36 billion cubic metres of gas from Turkmenistan every year without any mediators, paying with the monetary funds and commodities for the gas supplies. After Ukraine and Russia signed the contracts in 2009, Ukraine began to import gas through Russia.
