Ukraine can pay for 1 billion cu m of Russian gas even today


NJSC Naftogaz of Ukraine plans to make an advance payment for the future supply of 1 billion cu m of gas from Russia over Wednesday-Thursday.
Energy and Coal Industry Minister Volodymyr Demchyshyn told a briefing at the Cabinet, a Ukrinform correspondent reports.
“An advance payment is planned for 1 billion cu m, which we intended to use this month. This is just a hot theme, which we discussed at our meeting today. I think that this payment will be made today or tomorrow. I hope that today. This is a technical issue,” he said.
According to Demchyshyn, as soon as Ukraine makes the advance payment – it will be possible to start gas withdrawal.
“Taking into account the temperature regimes, we rather aggressively make gas withdrawals from our underground gas storages. Therefore, any supplies will help us balance the system now,” the Minister emphasized.
