The company believes that the litigation with “Naftogaz” will not prevent new negotiations.

Russia’s Gazprom ready to negotiate with Ukraine regarding a new contract for gas transit.

This was stated by Deputy Chairman of the management Board of the company Alexander Medvedev, writes “RIA Novosti”.

“Regarding the new agreement – and I emphasize, not an extension of the old, and the conclusion of a new contract for the transit of the territory of Ukraine, we are ready to negotiate,” he said.

According to Medvedev, the battle with NAK “Naftogaz of Ukraine” in the international courts will not interfere with such negotiations.

“In relation to arbitration proceedings, they not only do not interfere with these negotiations, but I can help”, – said the representative of “Gazprom”.

At the same time, Medvedev noted that the termination of existing contracts with “Naftogaz” does not mean the termination of gas transit to the EU via Ukraine, and its volumes after 2019 will depend on the position of Ukraine.

We will remind, in December 2017 and February 2018 Stockholm arbitration court ruled against counter-claims of “Gazprom” and “Naftogaz” on gas purchase by Ukraine and on the transit of Russian gas across the Ukrainian territory to Europe. The results of the two solutions Russia should pay Ukraine of 2.56 billion dollars, but still the money did not give. “Gazprom” has declared that these decisions have created an imbalance in Kiev, therefore he on the one hand appeals to them, on the other hand, has the intention to terminate these contracts through the court. Gazprom has sent to Naftogaz official notification of the beginning of the procedure the termination of contracts. In Kiev to terminate the contract don’t want.

“Gazprom” in March, appealed to the Swedish solution to the Stockholm arbitration on the claim of “Naftogaz” to contracts for the supply and transit of gas.
