Medvedev listed to Kiev conditions on gas transit


One of conditions of continuation of transit of gas through Ukraine demands refusal of lawsuits, the Russian prime minister said. Russia is ready to continue transit of gas through Ukraine, but for this purpose Kiev has to refuse lawsuits. It on Wednesday, June 5, the prime minister of the Russian Federation Dmitry Medvedev following the results of negotiations with the prime minister of Slovakia Peter Pellegrini said, TASS writes. "We did not refuse prolongation of the relevant contracts with Ukraine and use of this transit route. But this cooperation has to be pragmatic, it has to be based on the normal commercial relation, it has to be mutually advantageous, there have to be acceptable tariffs", - Medvedev told. "And, of course, this cooperation has to develop if for this purpose there is a necessary background - that is against the background of refusal of any infinite lawsuits which do not conduct anywhere but only drive a situation into the deadlock", - the Russian prime minister emphasized. Besides, it continued, it has to be defined, "how the gas transmission system of Ukraine will be operated" and also a number of other questions is solved. According to Medvedev, transit of the Russian gas through Ukraine will remain if the new authorities of the country pass from political speculation to pragmatical reasons. "We hope that, in any case, the new leadership of Ukraine has pragmatic reasons, the reasons connected with achievement of the normal arrangements based on pragmatism here will prevail over any political speculation", - Medvedev told. In this case, he concluded, "such transit will remain". Let's remind, earlier the director of Naftogaz of Ukraine Yury Vitrenko reported that at negotiations it will be offered to Gazprom to reserve capacities for transit on average of 60 billion cubic meters of gas a year for term in about 10 years. It is known that the contract between Naftogaz and the Russian Gazprom on transit of gas comes to an end at the end of 2019. Two rounds of negotiations with the assistance of European Commission did not yield results. At the moment the European Commission is engaged in the organization of a new round of negotiations.
