Poroshenko announced the price of European gas
President Petro Poroshenko has called the European price of gas for Ukraine.
He said this today, March 3, at the meeting with the leadership of “Ukrtransgaz”.
The head of state noted that Ukraine in March was to receive natural gas under the contract with “Gazprom” at the price of 238,55 dollars for 1 thousand cubic meters And the price in the spot market, which the country now buys gas in Europe – from 250-300 to 500 dollars.
“It’s the losses that Russia wanted the Ukraine suffered”, – said Poroshenko.
However, he added, they will be compensated. Naftogaz lawyers are already preparing a petition to the court on Gazprom.

And on the transit of gas to Ukrainian pipelines in the EU. The head of “Gazprom” Alexei Miller said that the decision made in Russia because of the verdict of the Stockholm arbitration, which was ordered to pay “Naftogaz” $ 4.5 billion compensation.
Recall Russian Gazprom refused to supply gas to Ukraine from March 1 and returned the paid money. In connection with the decision of the Stockholm arbitration, Ukraine has to buy every year from the Russian Federation (up to 2019, when the end of the contract) 4 billion cubic meters of gas (earlier it was 50 billion cubic meters). If Naftogaz buys gas, then automatically applies the formula of “take or pay” – that is, Kiev needs to pay even those amounts that have not bought. Therefore, “Naftogaz” was waiting for the final arbitration award, which was announced on 28 February to begin the compulsory purchase.
In “Naftogaz” noted that the refusal of Gazprom to supply gas automatically means that during 2018 to Ukraine will not be subject to “take or pay”.
Later “Gazprom” has declared that not only breaks with Ukraine contracts on gas supply and transit the territory of Ukraine to Europe. Then “Gazprom” has declared that will not stop the transit of gas through Ukraine “right now”.
On March 3, President Petro Poroshenko said that the difficult situation that has arisen because of the actions of “Gazprom”, was overcome. As of the morning of 3 March in Ukraine sharply increased the supply of gas from Poland, Slovakia and Hungary.
