KIEV, December 26, 1:47 /ITAR-TASS/. Kiev and Moscow study possibilities to supply Ukrainian electricity to Russia, Ukrainian Energy and Coal Mining Minister Eduard Stavitsky told a press conference on Wednesday.
A working group was formed earlier, which in late January will consider export prospects and price formation, he said.
Ukraine already supports the peak supply in southern Russia -- in the Rostov Region and the Krasnodar Territory. Small volumes are already supplied in accordance with an agreement between commercial structures, the minister said. The private holding of businessman Rinat Akhmetov deals with electricity supplies to Russia, he added.
According to Stavitsky, the issue is raised to the state level, and it will be considered in the near future.
