The statements of Gazprom on a possible provision of the discount for gas to Ukraine is a trick, in fact, because the price is higher than the market one by 100%. Naftogaz buys gbuys gas in Europe by a cheaper price than Gazprom offers with the discount, as Naftogaz Executive Director Yury Vitrenko reported on Facebook.

“About the so-called discount, which they offer. Firstly, they overstate by 100% of the fair market price and then they give a discount by 24%. Who is this for? Naftogaz buys it cheaper in Europe than Gazprom offers with a “discount”,” Vitrenko stated.

He stated he also received such offer but turned it down because it is not profitable for Ukraine.

“Gazprom offered it to me personally, as Head of Naftogaz’s delegation at the bilateral negotiations,” Vitrenko stated.

According to him, the Russian Federation is not satisfied that Ukraine pays less.

“Now Russia pays almost $1 billion more for transit than Naftogaz spends for the whole amount of the imported gas. In other words, money comes from Russia to Ukraine. It is not okay for Russia. They want Ukraine to get much less for transit then it paid to Russia for gas,” Vitrenko stated.

As we reported, Chairman of the Political Council of the Opposition platform - For Life Viktor Medvedchuk and founder of the party Yuriy Boyko hold talks with the leadership of Russian government and Gazprom regarding the resumption of direct gas purchases from Russia.

Russia is hurting economically. Russia wages war on Ukraine. Even if gas costs a fraction more don't buy Russian gas. Medvedchuk is a kremlin puppet. Why do people still listen to him. Why is he allowed to co-opt foreign policy talks with Russia ... This undermines the Ukrainian state ... It should have one unified voice in foreign relations. Sure he should be allowed to publicly speak out, his opinions. But not to travel and meat with, and especially not negotiate with foreign powers. Ukraine needs to hurt Russia economically as they have little chance stating alone against the russia militarily.
