“It is out of the question,” he said. “The so-called mutual settlement in fact is a Gazprom loan for Naftogaz.” It means that Gazprom again must make advance payments for future transit services. But Russia’s position was presented by President Vladimir Putin in Milan - Russia will not assume new obligations to finance Ukraine, Miller said.EU Energy Commissioner Gunther Oettinger has suggested that Ukraine should use Gazprom’s transit payments for Russian gas supplies to Europe to pay its debt.
Oettinger said Ukraine must pay $3.1 billion before the end of this year to Gazprom for already supplied gas. The Russian company will supply five billion cub/m of gas to Ukraine and give an option for five billion cub/m more. The price is set at $385 for 1,000 cub/m, with a $100 discount taken into account (from $485). The discount is given only for the next six months. After Ukraine repays $2 billion as part of its debt to Gazprom, the Russian company will supply at least five bln cub/m of natural gas.
