Russia reduces gas price for Ukraine
Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev has officially approved the reduction of gas price for Ukraine starting from April 1 for a period of three months.

The appropriate solution has been enacted by the resolution of the Russian government №295 from 31 March.

The notice about the signature by the Russian Prime Minister appeared on the website of the Russian government on Wednesday, April 1.

The reduction will be not more than $ 100, or 30% of the price.

Earlier, the Russian Minister Alexander Novak admitted that the gas price for Ukraine could reach $ 360 (without $ 100 "discount").

The Ukrainian Minster, in turn, said that Ukraine would buy Russian gas only if its price is around $ 250.

Earlier, it was reported that "Naftogaz" has offered "Gazprom" to continue "winter package" until spring 2016.

At the same time, the Russian side believes the price in the "package" is a price with discount, approved by the Russian government. The Ukrainian side considers it a market price.
