2019-10-18T13:43:32.125Z

The Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine in the first reading supported the bill on the unbundling of Naftogaz, which will make it possible to conclude a new agreement regarding the transit of Russian gas under European rules. It is reported by Gromadske.



It is noted that the bill was supported by 286 deputies.

The document will allow creating an operator of the gas transmission system of Ukraine independent of Naftogaz.

“After the bill is approved by the Verkhovna Rada, Ukraine will have the opportunity to effectively complete the unbundling process and strengthen its position in negotiations to continue transit,” said the head of Naftogaz Andrey Kobolev.

Earlier, Prime Minister of Ukraine Alexey Goncharuk said that Kiev does not agree to extend the annual transit contract with Russia, as it intends to conclude a long-term agreement.
