Moscow is ready to keep gas transit after 2019 in case of settlement of disputes between Gazprom and Naftogaz.

The first Deputy head of RF government staff Sergey Prikhodko said that Moscow is ready to save the transit of gas via Ukraine at cost-effective conditions and in the case of fair resolution of disputes between Gazprom and Naftogaz. He told this to journalists on Sunday, June 23, reports TASS.

“The Russian side has repeatedly stated its readiness to keep gas transit through the Ukrainian gas transportation system on mutually agreeable terms after 2019,” − said the representative of the Russian Cabinet.

According to him, it is necessary to coordinate economic conditions to create a conducive atmosphere to dialogue and to normalize relations between the companies concerned.

Prikhodko noted that the concept of the gas pipeline Nord stream-2 does not provide that transit on existing routes will be discontinued.

“It concerns both Ukraine, and other countries,” he said.

Recall, the current contract on gas transit between Gazprom and Naftogaz expires in 2019.

Last week, Gazprom said about the impossibility of conclusion of contract for gas transit with Ukraine in the European context. In response, Naftogaz has offered to supply Russian fuel to Europe on the terms “swap”.
