The leadership of the Cabinet of Ministers of Ukraine and leadership of Naftogaz intentionally buy gas at exorbitant prices. Yuriy Boiko, the Founder of Opposition Platform – For Life party stated that during negotiations with Gazprom CEO Aleksey Miller in Saint Petersburg on June 7.
“It will be 25% lower than the price, on which the gas is bought today, on the so-called reverse [from Europe]. And the head of Gazprom confirmed it and it is not just some kind of promise. It is the economic calculations, which show that today’s leadership of Naftogaz, leadership of government deliberately buys gas at exorbitant prices; however, we will be able to get it much cheaper on direct supplies. It is a price of bread; it is a price of sugar; all this is goods, used by people every day,” Boiko emphasized.
