Prime Minister Oleksiy Honcharuk said the priority for Ukraine in gas negotiations is a contract for a maximum period. He reported this this in an interview with RBC-Ukraine.
 
"We understand very well that the main story in this case is a long-term contract, which should be in the national interests - that is, the maximum volume, maximum period, according to European rules," the prime minister said.

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."
