The scheme of a new gas deal between Russia and Ukraine is disclosed


Revealing the details of a package deal with Gazprom, the executive director of the Ukrainian Naftogaz Yuri Vitrenko on his Facebook page noted that the signing of such a contract is an extraordinary event.


According to the top manager, the eccentricity is that for the first time in the history of Russian-Ukrainian gas relations, Gazprom signed a contract on the European principle of "download or pay."

Vitrenko noted the difficulties that accompanied the signing of the new contract: due to the need for a number of approvals of the terms of the contract with the Naftogaz Supervisory Board and the Cabinet of Ministers of Ukraine, the contract was signed remotely - the Ukrainian representative signed in Vienna after lunch, and Gazprom head Alexey Miller in the evening the same day in St. Petersburg.

Top manager of Naftogaz confirmed that the parties have signed an agreement on the settlement of litigation. According to its terms, all ongoing claims and complaints from both parties will be withdrawn from the courts.

In conclusion, it can be stated that by signing a new agreement, Ukraine and Russia began gas relations, as they say, “from scratch”.

The next step in this area of ​​relations between neighboring countries may be the beginning of direct deliveries of Russian gas to Ukraine. The parties agreed to discuss this issue after the New Year.

    Gazprom signed a contract on the European principle of "download or pay."

    What is it that turns out? If the EU orders less than the contracted volume, will Gazprom pay fines? In order to fulfill such volumes, in the case of small orders, Gazprom must refuse to pump through the North. full flow and Turkish stream. And Sev. flow -2 generally becomes the fifth wheel in the cart? Or is it not so scary? In any case, Bandera is still benefiting, and what will happen in 5 years, only the Lord God knows. Here are the re-election of the president in Russia according to the plan.

    The ban on the Russian language, the destruction of monuments, Russophobic politics, is it all forgiven for gas? And what when signing the contract, they didn’t remember about it? Huckster managers, you should do the very thing in the bazaar, and not engage in state affairs!
