PM: Russia offers current gas pact rollover, consortium deal to Kiev

Truba09MOSCOW, Jul 10 (PRIME) -- Russia has suggested prolonging the current gas transit contract with Ukraine, or to create a consortium, Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev said on Wednesday after a meeting with Ukrainian party Opposition Platform Ц For life.

УConcerning how we can move onЕ there are several options. One of them, perhaps, the easiest, is to retain the contracts which exist for some time in order to come to an agreement in a more serious way,Ф Medvedev said.

УThe second, which we have never ruled out is a consortium which used to be hyper-politicized for a time but nowЕ. I mean, the TurkStream and Nord Stream, this problem is gone.Ф

But co-chairman of the Ukrainian party Yury Boiko said that both scenarios require additional consultations.

Boiko also said that Ukraine might be ready to sign a contract of direct gas purchases from Russia already in August.

Chairman of the political council of the party Viktor Medvedchuk said he had asked Medvedev to prolong a unilateral lifting of sanctions from Ukrainian companies. УWeТve returned to the topic of tariffs and gas prices .. WeТve asked to prolong, at least unilaterally for some time, the lifting of sanctions which are taking place against Ukrainian companies.Ф

Ukraine ceased gas purchases from Russia in November 2015. The current supply and transit contracts between Russia and Ukraine expire at the end of 2019.
