Ukraine to raise pumping price for transit Russian gas

Ukraine wants Russia to pay a higher price for its gas transit, and the talks are under way, Batkivshchyna’s Serhy Sobolev told journalists, Interfax-Ukrayina reports March 27.

While Russia has cancelled any discounts for Ukraine, supplying gas to Kyiv at world prices, the gas pumping rate is below the world price, Sobolev explained.

Ukraine can be saved by alternative gas supplies from the European Union. A number of EU countries confirmed their readiness to sell gas to Ukraine at prices lower than the Russian ones, S. Sobolev stressed.
