"OJSC" Gazprom "requires additional capacity to transport natural gas through the Ukrainian GTS to Europe in October", - the statement says.

It is noted that transit services will be paid for by Gazprom in addition to the main transit agreement.

It is noted that the capacity distribution auction took place on the RBP (Hungary) and GSA (Poland) platforms on September 21.

This is the first auction of this kind.

Earlier, the head of NJSC Naftogaz Ukrainy, Andriy Kobolev, told how much Russian Gazprom will pay Ukraine for gas transit in 2020.
