Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev claimed that Kyiv refused preferential priced for gas, offered by Russia.
According to him, Russia offered Ukraine a new gas price of $247 per 1,000 cubic meters.
“It is known that gas, received by Ukraine through reverse-flow deliveries from some European countries, costs its consumers by around $20 - $30 more. So, let those who know about that figure out what is more profitable,” said Dmitry Medvedev.
A few days ago, Ukrainian Prime Minister Arseniy Yatsenyuk said that Ukraine, within the preparation for the forthcoming heating season, had accumulated around 14,5 bln cubic meters of gas in underground storages.
However, this volume should be increased up to 19 bln cubic meters to provide comfort conditions during the winter period. Earlier on, Natalie Yaresko, the Minister of Finance of Ukraine said that the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development would consider the allocation of loan to Ukraine in amount of $300 mln for the purchase of natural gas in Europe.
