"We must sign everything until December 29, so that transit is preserved from January 1," Vitrenko said.
The agreement between Gazprom and Naftogaz will pre-determine the tariff. The contract will be concluded in accordance with international law and international arbitration, according to European standards, - Vitrenko informed.
