Deputy Min: Proposals on future gas transit via Ukraine puzzling

Truba09BERLIN, May 16 (PRIME) -- Russia is still interested in the further use of UkraineТs gas transportation system after 2019, but the current volume and dates proposals of the future transit are baffling as they contradict the E.U.Тs Third Energy Package, RussiaТs Deputy Energy Minister Anatoly Yanovsky said at a conference on Thursday.

УThe interesting thing is that the proposals which we receive from our partners, the format of the proposals which envisage setting the volumes and the timeline of transit, are puzzling as contradict the ideology of the E.U.Тs Third Energy Package that requires that gas transportation capacities should be distributed basing on auctions,Ф he said.

УNo such auction has been announced in Ukraine, and it is unclear whether they are planned for the futureЕ We are interested in the further use of the Ukrainian gas transit system, but we need reasonable economic conditions in line with the current international legislation.Ф

Yanovsky also said that Russia is ready for the next negotiations with Ukraine and the European Commission on gas transit, the date depends on UkraineТs readiness after the recent presidential election.

The current gas transit contract between Russia and Ukraine expires at the end of 2019.
