Russia may increase gas transit via Ukraine if it receives favorable commercial offers from Kyiv. Dmitriy Peskov, Putin's press secretary said so as quoted by RIA Novosti.

"The President has repeatedly said that if they continue to buy our gas, if they increase contracts, and, of course, if Ukraine gives competitive commercial offers, then all this will continue to work," Peskov stressed.

According to him, Ukraine should also turn to European companies that buy Russian gas and can conclude new supply agreements taking into account the growing demand.

"That is, in order to transport something through the territory of Ukraine, you need someone to buy it," the Kremlin spokesman added.

Meanwhile, Russian President Vladimir Putin, who promised to surprise the world with gas supplies, said that Ukrainian politicians are calling for the nationalization of gas and that pumping out of underground gas storage systems has already begun in Ukraine. 

According to Putin, 18 billion cubic meters of gas is stored in Ukrainian underground storage facilities, some of which belong to European and private operators.
