KIEV, November 28, 20:45 /ITAR-TASS/. Slovakia and Ukraine are to sign an agreement on reverse gas supplies to Ukraine in the amount of over 10 billion cubic metres next week, Eduard Stavitsky, Ukraine’s minister of energy and coal industry, told the Ukrainian news agency UNIAN on Thursday.
“We have received the draft agreement from our partners and we discuss it now with jurists analyzing it so that the agreement should be signed next week,” Stavitsky said. According to his information, the amount of gas supply will be no less than 10 billion cubic metres. “This is an historic moment, the one hundred percent diversification of the routes of gas supply to Ukraine,” the minister said.
Stavitsky also announced that Ukraine would start receiving gas from Slovakia from July 2014. The Slovak side wants guarantees that Ukraine will draw no less than 10 billion cubic metres of gas.
Stavitsky stated earlier that Slovakia had referred to Ukraine the signed agreement to allow for gas reverse from European Union countries.
Ukraine started buying gas from countries of the European Union since November 2012. The government suggested earlier concluding a contract for natural gas deliveries in the amount of 7 billion cubic metres a year via the territories of Hungary and Slovakia and reducing gas purchase from Russia to 20 billion cubic metres. The reverse gas deliveries now come via Hungary.
