MOSCOW, September 24. /TASS/. Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev has signed a decree on the export customs duties for Russia’s natural gas supplies to Ukraine, the government’s official website said on Thursday.
"Under the decree, the gas price for Ukraine has been set at the level of gas prices for the countries of the European Union adjacent to Ukraine," the statement said. This concerns the supplies from October 1 to December 31, 2015.
On Friday, Brussels will host another round of trilateral gas talks between the EU, Ukraine and Russia. The discussion will focus on the so-called "winter package" or the price for the Russian gas between October 1 and April 2016.
The talks will be attended by Russian Energy Minister Alexander Novak, Gazprom CEO Alexei Miller, Vice President of the European Commission Maros Sefcovic and Ukrainian Energy Minister Vladimir Demchishin.
Russia expects to sign the gas agreement with Ukraine at the talks, Novak said on Thursday. The discount for Ukraine will be clear after the government decree is signed by the end of the month, he added.
Ukraine’s energy giant Naftogaz refused to buy Russian gas starting from the third quarter of 2015, although the price for 1,000 cubic meters was at least $20-30 less than the prices for Ukraine in Europe.
