BRUSSELS, August 30 /ITAR-TASS/. Ukraine is engaged in negotiations on gas supplies to underground gas storage facilities bypassing direct deliveries from Russia, Ukrainian President Pyotr Poroshenko said on Saturday.

“We are very actively engaged in gas talks, and I would like to confirm that gas can be supplied not only from Russia and there is a way to fill our underground storage facilities,” the president said.

“I can assure everyone that if there is peace in Ukraine, it won’t be left without gas. If the situation worsens, gas won’t be the most important issue,” Poroshenko said.

Gazprom halted gas supplies to Ukraine in June over its unpaid debt and filed a $4.5 billion suit to the Stockholm arbitration court. Later, Kiev reciprocated by sending a suit to the court against Gazprom for making Ukraine overpay $6 billion for gas since 2010, setting too high prices in its contract.
