The signing of a package of agreements between Naftogaz and Gazprom is a compromise. This was announced during a briefing by the chairman of Naftogaz board Andriy Kobolev, UNN reports.

“The main agreements between the Ukrainian and Russian parties were signed in Vienna. I don’t quite understand and cannot comment on everything regarding the agreement on the Antimonopoly Committee, but on commercial transactions between the Naftogaz group and Gazprom ... I’ll say right away that a package of agreements has been signed, we at Naftogaz call it a compromise, a completely acceptable compromise that satisfies both parties to one degree or another, but the compromise provides that each side gives something away,” Kobolev said.

According to him, "the Ukrainian side gave something, the Russian side also gave something."

"I hope that everyone doesn’t lose from this agreement, but everyone gets something. I hope that this agreement will start a relationship when everyone is happy and gets something. When someone constantly loses, such constructions are not stable" , - said the head of Naftogaz.

He also said that new transit contracts between LLC Gas Transmission System Operator of Ukraine, Naftogaz Ukraine and Russian PJSC Gazprom would be regulated under Swedish law.

According to the head of Naftogaz, the transit of natural gas through Ukraine in 2020 could reach 75 billion cubic meters.
