He recalled that Russian President Vladimir Putin “said that even in the context of diversifying our energy supply routes to European consumers, the Russian side is ready to continue to further transit gas through Ukraine.”
“But this is possible only if the conditions of economic and commercial feasibility are preserved for our supplier, that is, for Gazprom,” TASS quotes Peskova.
He added that negotiations on this issue are ongoing.
Earlier, the executive director of Naftogaz Ukrainy, Yuri Vitrenko, said that the Russian and Ukrainian parties had previously agreed on gas transit.
Director of the Center for Geopolitical Research at the Institute for Innovative Development Dmitry Rodionov, in an interview with the FAN, commented on the situation with negotiations between Russia and Ukraine on gas.
