KIEV, January 24, /ITAR-TASS/. Ukraine plans to buy 33-35 billion cubic metres of Russian gas, Ukrainian Minister of Energy and Coal Industry Eduard Stavitsky told journalists.
“We plan to buy at least 33-35 billion cubic metres of gas,” he said, adding that this was the upper limit of planned gas purchases.
In December 2013, Stavitsky said that Ukraine planned to buy 30-33 billion cibic metres of Russian gas in 2014. Deputy Prime Minister Yuri Boiko however said that Kiev would continue to reduce it gas imports from Russia. Thus, he said, imports of Russian gas in 2014 would be cut by ten percent on the previous year. He noted that Ukraine had reduced Russian gas imports by 25 percent in the past three years. “And we put it straight to our partners that we will continue this policy,” he said back then.
