KIEV, January 28. /TASS/. Kiev will perform transit of Russian gas to Europe without the 50% tariff hike until a new agreement is signed, Ukraine’s Energy and Coal Minister Vladimir Demchishin said on Thursday.
"We have no basis at present [to invoice Russia] under new tariffs because the agreement has not been signed. We are working under existing contracts," Demchishin said, cited by UNIAN news agency.
Russia and Ukraine are currently working under the transit agreement to expire in 2019 only.
Ukraine’s oil and gas company Naftogaz expects to discuss tariffs on gas transit from Russia by end of January in connection with the take-or-pay principle introduced in Ukraine since this year, CEO of the company Andrey Kobolev said earlier in January.
