VILNIUS, November 28. /ITAR-TASS/. The transit of Russia gas via Ukraine’s territory may exceed 90 billion cubic meters this year, Eduard Stavitsky, Ukraine’s minister of energy and coal industry, told reporters on Thursday.
According to the ministry’s information, gas transit last year dropped by 19.1 percent as compared with 2011 to 84.261 billion cubic meters.
The minister made assurances that the amount of gas transit in 2013 will be larger than last year. “I believe it will be about 90 billion cubic meters or, maybe, larger,” Stavitsky said. Commenting on the plans for next year, he said Kiev hoped that the volume of gas pumping would be “at the level of 90 billion, or even higher.”
Ukrainian Deputy Prime Minister Yuri Boiko said earlier that Kiev guaranteed the transit of Russia gas to European Union countries in full volume. He said “transit is reliable and is made in accordance with the applications coming from Gazprom and from European countries.
