KIEV, December 25. /ITAR-TASS/. Ukraine and Slovakia in the next few days are expected to sign a document, which will allow Kiev to import natural gas from Europe via Slovakia, Ukrainian Energy and Coal Industry Minister Eduard Stavitsky declared on Wednesday.
“The hope the document will be signed this week. Negotiations to the effect are under way within the schedule,” the minister said.
Ukraine is striving for opening a Slovak route for gas supplies from European Union to the country in order to diversify its natural gas import. The energy minister said earlier that despite of the decline in the cost of Russia’s gas for Naftogaz Ukrainy to 268.5 U.S. dollars per 1,000 cubic metres (almost by a third), Ukraine is not going to give up the import diversification idea.
In the meantime, Kiev will buy gas of that supplier, whose fuel will be cheaper, the minister stressed. As of now, the proposal of Russia’s gas giant Gazprom for 2014 is the most profitable from the viewpoint of gas cost.
