Ukraine is ready to buy Russian natural gas at a price of 160-170 dollars per 1 thousand cubic meters, reported Minister of Energy and Coal Industry of Ukraine Vladimir Demchyshyn.

"160-170 dollars, in this range. This is a fair market price." - Demchyshyn said.

Also the head of the Ministry said that Ukraine buys gas on the price of 170 dollars from German suppliers, in particular at "Statoil" company.

Earlier we reported that Russia decreased gas price for Ukraine in Q2 2016

"There are dozens of traders, which vary depending on the situation, because the contracts generally last for month", - said Demchyshyn.

In addition, he noted that the price of $ 180 proposed by the Russian side is commercially disadvantageous to Ukraine.
