KIEV, January 24, /ITAR-TASS/. The Naftogaz Ukrainy national joint-stock company is planning to pay its outstanding 2.7-billion-dollar debt to Russian Gazprom for 2013, Ukraine’s Minister of Energy and Coal Industry Eduard Stavitsky told journalists.
“Naftogaz Ukrainy is going to pay all its debts before March 2014,” the minister added.
“All these questions are being solved and will be solved,” Stavitsky said.
Earlier on Friday, Ukrainian Vice-Premier Yuri Boiko said that Ukraine and Russia were considering various options of paying off debt for Russian gas.
“We are considering various options. Anyway, there is understanding that strategic partnership with Russia will help us finding the right option acceptable for both sides,” Stavitsky said in his answer to a question whether it was possible to restructure Ukraine’s debt for Russian gas.
According to previous reports from Gazprom, the Ukrainian side is supposed to pay off its gas debt worth about 2.7 billion dollars before January 25 this year.
