MOSCOW, November 11 /TASS/. Ukraine has confirmed that it will supply electric energy to Crimea in November in amounts necessary to meet the peninsula’s needs, the Russian Energy Ministry said on Wednesday.
The ministry explained there are two different contracts to ensure energy supplies from Ukraine to Crimea and from Russia to Ukraine. Under these contracts, the buyer should announce the required delivery volumes, which should be confirmed and approved by the seller.
"In short, whenever electric energy is supplied to Ukraine, a Ukrainian counteragent announces how much energy it really needs while the Russian side confirms the delivery if possible," the Energy Ministry said.
"In November 2015, the Ukrainian counteragent said it had prepared the schedule of deliveries until November 12 which was agreed. Concurrently, the Russian side applied for electric energy deliveries to Crimea and the Ukrainian side confirmed the volumes necessary for meeting the peninsula’s needs this month," the ministry stressed.
The Russian Energy Ministry emphasized that electric energy, which Russia supplied to Ukraine, was a vital instrument to ensure the reliable operation of Ukraine’s energy system. The ministry recalled that Ukraine’s Minister of Energy and Coal Mining Industry Volodymyr Demchyshyn said in October 2015 that the Ukrainian side intended to prolong its energy delivery contract with Russia before it expired late in December.
