Yatseniuk says there are two options for interim decision on gas

Ukrainian Prime Minister Arseniy Yatseniuk has said he sees two options for an interim decision on Russian gas supplies: an interim verdict of the Stockholm arbitration court or an interim agreement with Russia.
He said this at a meeting with foreign investors on Thursday, a Ukrinform correspondent reported.
“I would like to inform you that Ukraine is seeking an interim decision, because Ukraine has filed a lawsuit against Russia’s Gazprom… There are two options on the table: an interim verdict of the Stockholm court and an interim agreement. Nevertheless, in any case, we expect a final judgment in the Stockholm arbitration court,” Yatseniuk said.
In particular, he said that the interim decision would be discussed at trilateral consultations between the EU, Ukraine and Russia in Brussels.
As Ukrinform reported, on September 26, Berlin hosted another round of trilateral gas talks between the EU, Ukraine and Russia. The European Commission offered the parties an intermediate price (until the end of March 2015) for Russian natural gas at $385 per 1,000 cubic meters, according to which Ukraine will buy five billion cubic meters of gas from Gazprom. Ukraine, in turn, was to pay $3.1 billion to Russia in 2014.
