NOVO-OGAREVO, January 29. /ITAR-TASS/. Ukraine’s debt for Russian gas has reached two billion 700 million dollars, Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev said at a meeting between President Vladimir Putin and the government at the Russian presidential residence on Wednesday.
“Unfortunately, despite delays, Ukraine did not begin to repay its gas debt this year,” he noted. “Moreover, Ukraine asks again for a delay over historic debt and does not make current payments,” Medvedev said.
"They do not pay even at the lowered prices, do they?" Putin asked. "Even at lowered prices. They say they are unable to pay," the prime minister answered.
The president noted that contact with the colleagues should not be lost even in the current situation.
Aside from financial relations and energy agreements, there are other plans, cooperation in industrial production and aircraft and shipbuilding. Even before a new Ukrainian government is formed, the Russian government will continue the work, the president noted.
