MOSCOW, January 15. /TASS/. Russia doesn’t plan to fully halt transit gas shipments via Ukraine after the current contract expires in 2019, Energy Minister Alexander Novak said in an interview with RBC business channel on Friday, adding that the final decision will be taken after talks between Gazprom and Naftogaz Ukrainy.
"Probably, some gas volumes will remain after 2019 though it will mainly depend on talks between Gazprom and Naftogaz Ukrainy closer to the end of the current contract," he said.
Earlier Gazprom CEO Alexey Miller said gas transit via Ukraine will continue to certain extent after 2019, adding that Russia’s gas giant will not sign a new gas transit contract under unacceptable terms.
