The Ukrainian Cabinet of Ministers officially gave permission for Naftogaz to sign a contract with the Russian gas giant. It is about allowing gas transit through the country.
That's not all: Ukrainian ministers allowed Naftogaz to settle well-known disputes with a Russian pipeline gas supplier.
Some details. Naftogaz is allowed to conclude an agreement with Gazprom on the pipeline transportation of natural gas through Ukrainian territory. The time frame for the contract was established from 2020 to 2024. The company is also allowed to sign an agreement with Gazprom (global).
The Cabinet of Ministers thus gave the go-ahead for further commercial relations related to the transportation of gas to PJSC Gazprom.
Recall that the 2024th year is the year when the presidential election is to take place in Russia.
