KIEV, August 28 (Itar-Tass) - Ukrainian Deputy Prime Minister Yuri Boiko and Russia’s Gazprom giant CEO Alexei Miller have discussed Russian gas supplies in the autumn and winter seasons, the Ukrainian government’s press service reported on Wednesday.
Boiko and Miller coordinated the plan for Russian gas supplies to Ukraine, the press service said in its report.
However, it refused to elaborate.
Ukrainian Minister of Energy and Coal Industry Eduard Stavtsk told journalists that the Ukrainian delegation, which included Nafrogaz Ukrainy CEO Yevgeny Bakulin, was currently in Moscow for talks on gas supplies.
The minister said Ukraine was considering Russia’s proposal to increase gas injection in the country’s underground gas storage facilities. “We need 14 billion cubic meters and Russia insists on approximately 18-19 billion cubic meters. The talks on this issue continue,” Stavitsky said.
Earlier, Kommersant-Ukraina daily reported that Ukraine offered several variants to settle the problem. Under one of the variants, Ukraine is ready to inject five billion cubic meters of gas (about two billion U.S. dollars) in underground gas storage facilities if Gazprom or Gazprombank provide a no-interest loan to purchase gas and extend the previous loans.
Stavitsky declined to comment on Kiev’s plans to receive a no-interest loan.
