The Ukrainian side hopes that a new long-term agreement with Russia will be concluded on the basis of market principles.
This agreement includes pricing mechanism, type of payment and supply.
"The expected price in the second quarter will be $ 248 per thousand cubic meters," – reports the company.
"Naftogaz" says that the current agreement is a temporary one and soon there will be a new treaty.
"The continuation of the "winter package" for three months gives the parties additional time to develop a long-term solution," – says "Naftogaz" CEO, Andriy Kobolyev, cited by press service of the company.
The Ukrainian side insists that the gas trade should be based on transparent commercial terms. According to Andriy Kobolyev, the European Commission supports Ukraine's aspirations.
Earlier, it was reported that "Naftogaz" offered "Gazprom" to continue the "winter package" until spring 2016.Source: ZN.UA
