KIEV, November 27. /ITAR-TASS/. The top officials of the Russian gas giant Gazprom and the Ukrainian major company Naftogaz Ukrainy will have next talks in Moscow on Thursday, Ukrainian Minister of Energy and Coalmining Industry Eduard Stavitsky told a news briefing on Wednesday. The negotiators will discuss a new payment schedule for Russian gas supplies.
“Our delegation will go to Gazprom tomorrow (November 28), where we will discuss and specify these last issues (gas payment schedule),” the minister noted.
Deputy head of the Russian gas holding Andrei Kruglov said earlier that Gazprom does not see progress in Ukraine’s repayment of the debt for Russian gas supplies. Gazprom threatened to shift Naftogaz on making prepayments.
Stavitsky stated earlier that Naftogaz continues to pay for August gas supplies to Gazprom, and Gazprom had not shifted Naftogaz on advanced payments yet. Stavitsky assumed that one of sources for Naftogaz gas debt repayment with Gazprom will be the measure to levy the debt from electric power utilities for gas supplies. He did not name the sum of debt.
