Medvedev, MIller discuss gas supply to Ukraine

Dmitry Medvedev, Russian Prime Minister and Alexey Miller, Chairman of the Gazprom Management Committee held a meeting in Moscow.

The meeting looked at the passing of the autumn-winter period. Alexey Miller reported that Gazprom had steadily supplied Russian and foreign consumers with gas in winter.

Special attention was paid to Russian gas supply to Ukraine. It was pointed out that on March 31 the ‘winter package’ and, accordingly, the gas discount of USD 100 per 1 thousand cubic meters were expiring, stands in a Gazprom statement.

The issue of granting a discount falls within the competence of the Russian Government. All the other terms and conditions of gas supply to Ukraine are totally regulated by the existing contract between Gazprom and Naftogaz of Ukraine and addenda to it. There is no need to amend these documents in order to supply gas to Ukraine starting from April 1.
