At the same time, he confirmed the recent statement by the head of Naftogaz, Kobolev, that Kiev does not plan to buy gas in Russia.
The newspaper reminds that by the end of March an agreement on the so-called “winter package expires, according to which Ukraine has the right to buy natural fuel from Russia. This agreement was initialed by both countries through the mediation of the European Commissioners in September 2015.
