The prime minister also noted that the government will look for an opportunity to provide consumers with a minimum payment.
"I think that cheap cheese is always in a mousetrap. Because what is Ukraine striving for? Ukraine is striving to work according to European rules. Of course, we will look for an opportunity for our consumers to provide a minimum payment," he said.
Naftogaz is ready to withdraw the claims against Gazprom in a new arbitration, if a long-term transit contract is concluded that will cover all expenses. The executive director of NAK Naftogaz-Ukraine Yuriy Vitrenko said on Facebook.
“We are also ready to withdraw our claims in the new arbitration, but only if a long-term transit contract is signed that will cover all costs, and if Naftogaz is compensated for Gazprom’s default on current contracts,” - Vitrenko wrote.
Naftogaz is ready to consider the possibility of receiving gas from Gazprom by repaying a debt ($ 3 billion) by a decision of the past Stockholm arbitration.
Vitrenko noted that they are ready to return to trilateral negotiations and "tell the Europeans how they discussed these issues in good faith."
