KIEV, May 15. /TASS/. Ukraine insists on the revision of the natural gas transit agreement with Russia, Ukraine’s Prime Minister Arseniy Yatsenyuk said on Friday.
"We demand revision of the gas transit agreement that is loss-making for Ukraine from Russia’s Gazprom and this is an element of the legal proceedings against Gazprom," he added.
Yatsenyuk said Ukraine will import at least a half of required natural gas from EU member-states.
"The minimal gas balance is 50 to 50. The minimal gas quantity we will purchase in the EU equals 50%," he added.
Kiev is recently purchasing the natural gas using reverse configurations from Gaz de France, E.ON, RWE, Royal Dutch Shell, and Statoil, the prime minister said.
