MOSCOW, December 8. /TASS/. Russia’s natural gas monopoly Gazprom expects a request from the Ukrainian state oil and natural gas company Naftogaz for the resumption of gas supplies to Ukraine, Gazprom’s spokesman Sergey Kupriyanov told reporters on Monday.
“The money (for the gas supply) has been received,” he said. “We expect a request form Ukraine’s Naftogaz regarding the supply volumes,” Kupriyanov said.
On December 7, Ukrainian Energy and Coal Industry Minister Volodymyr Demchishin said that Ukraine would start to withdraw Russian gas it has already paid for from Monday, December 8. “On Friday, we paid Gazprom for one billion cubic meters of gas and will start to withdraw gas from Monday,” Demchishin said.
Ukraine’s Naftogaz on the night to Saturday said the company made an advance payment for the December supplies of Russian gas. Gazprom later confirmed it received a payment worth $378 million from Ukraine.
Under the reached agreements, the natural gas price for Ukraine in the fourth quarter of 2014 is $378 for 1,000 cubic meters. Thus, Ukraine’s Naftogaz made a prepayment for 1 billion cubic meters of gas.
On June 16, Gazprom under the contract with Naftogaz stopped the gas delivery to the Ukrainian side as it had not received prepayment for the June supplies.
