MOSCOW, June 03. /ITAR-TASS/. Russian energy giant Gazprom and Ukrainian state-run oil and gas company Naftogaz may continue talks already on Tuesday, Gazprom spokesman Sergey Kupriyanov told reporters.
In May, Ukraine has consumed 3.6 billion cubic meters of Russian gas. Ukraine has not paid for 9.8 billion cubic meters of gas Russia supplied to Ukraine, Kupriyanov added. Russia has exported gas to Ukraine in a record high volume for this time of the year, he said.
Earlier, Gazprom CEO Alexei Miller said that in May, Ukraine had been consuming gas in a maximum volume per day envisaged in the gas contract with Russia and that Ukraine's gas consumption in May alone fetched a price worth around $1.7 billion.
On Monday, Ukraine paid off $786.4 million to Gazprom for gas supplied in February-March, 2014. The Russian Energy Ministry has confirmed that Ukraine has made two payments — for February and March, 2014.
According to Russian sources, Ukraine owes $1.6 billion to Russia for gas sold to Ukraine for $268.5 per 1,000 cubic meters in January-March 2014 .
In April, Ukraine's debt totaled $1.3 billion for gas sold for a price worth $485.5 per 1,000 cubic meters.
Ukraine's overall gas debt for 2013 totals $0.6 billion.
