Undiscounted price for Russian gas for Ukraine in the second quarter of 2015 may total $348 per one thousand cubic meters, according to preliminary estimations, Russian Energy Minister Alexander Novak said before the start of trilateral gas talks between Russia, the EU and Ukraine in Brussels Friday.
