Ukraine intends to achieve the long-term contract on the transit of the Russian gas to Europe as Interfax-Ukraine reported citing Prime Minister Oleksiy Honcharuk.

“We, of course, need to achieve the long-term contract on transit. We need to work a lot for it,” Honcharuk said.

According to the prime minister, the government prepares the position of the Ukrainian side within the preparation for the trilateral negotiations.

“We deeply understand the current situation. We prepare for the negotiations. We form the position at the talks. That is why I do not want to comment it in public,” Honcharuk noted.

The action of the contracts between Russia and Ukraine for the transit and gas supply ends at the end of 2019.

As it was reported earlier, Russia named the condition, under which it would be ready to keep the gas transit across Ukraine. According to Sergei Prikhodko, Deputy Head of the Russian government, all Ukraine-Russia court litigations in the gas sector must be regulated.
