ANTALYA, November 16. /TASS/. Prepaid gas will suffice for Ukraine for 4 days, Gazprom CEO Alexey Miller said on Monday, adding that he does not have any information about new payments.
"The main problem of gas supplies to Ukraine is our Ukrainian partners not having enough funds," he said. "Ukraine has reduced volumes of gas offtake in recent days to minimum, which enabled Ukraine to extend supplies for some more time," Miller said, adding though that "given this extremely low offtake level prepaid gas will suffice for only 4 days and we don’t have any information about Naftogaz’ plans to transfer additional funds in the nearest days."
As Alexey Miller reported last week Ukraine reduced Russian gas purchases by 4 times compared with the beginning of the current month to 10 mln cubic meters per day. "Ukraine has reduced volumes of its gas purchases from Russia due to Naftogaz financial deficit compared with the beginning of the month by 4 times — to 10 mln cubic meters per day," Miller said. Meanwhile, Chief Executive Officer of Ukraine’s state gas company Naftogaz Andrey Kobolev said Ukraine will buy Russian gas only at favorable market environment and as deemed necessary. "We’ll be paying for Russian gas as deemed necessary. In case we need it we buy, in case we don’t need it we don’t buy. We’ll be buying in case we see favorable environment," Kobolev said.
