Директор «Нафтогаза» назвал неприемлемыми условия РФ по транзиту газа

National joint stock company “Naftogaz of Ukraine” considers unacceptable voiced by the Russian Federation of conditions of the contract for gas transit.

This was reported in Facebook the Executive Director of “Naftogaz of Ukraine” Yuriy Vitrenko.

According to Vitrenko, the terms “about restoring balance in relationships” and the transit without obligations of Gazprom’s volumes are unacceptable. In particular, the balance between “Naftogaz” and “Gazprom” restored by the decisions of international arbitration. In addition, the NAC is not going to give up winning $ 4.6 billion in transit case, $ 2 billion in the case of revision of prices and the cancellation of obligations to “Gazprom” for the sum about $ 80 billion on the status of “take-or-pay”.

“To sum up, the transit through Ukraine may be at standard European conditions and not the conditions of the Russian Federation”, – said Vitrenko.

He also stressed that at “Naftogaza” there is a real opportunity through a new arbitration to seize approximately $ 10 billion compensation for the lack of transit after 2019.

Earlier, Deputy foreign Minister Alexander Pankin said that Russia is ready to continue the transit of gas through Ukraine only on their own terms.

We will note, in January European Commission first expressed interest in the transit of gas in these volumes after 2019.
