Russia cut off all gas supplies to Ukraine last week.
Ukraine has rejected Russian President Vladimir Putin’s offer of the “final price” of USD 385 per 1,000 cubic meters, saying it would pay USD 326. Kiev has refused to pay for natural gas upfront as a protest to Russia’s decision in April to almost double gas prices. Gazprom raised the price of gas for Ukrainian consumers to USD 485 per 1,000 cubic meters from USD 268 for the first quarter of 2014.
The tiny judeo-satanists cabal that runs the western war machine will sacrifice millions if not billions of lives to remain on top of the heap. Of course they will keep themselves well protected, far from the genocidal destruction, as their minions go into battle for whatever god and employer they subscribe to. Opposing armies and groups don’t worry the cabal. The cabal is only afraid of one thing; the determined individual with inside information, who is willing to remove the small head from its large body.
Russia’s state gas giant Gazprom has assured that the country’s gas flows to Europe through Ukraine is in a steady state amid a pricing dispute between Moscow and Kiev.
« Transit via Ukraine flows within contractual parameters, the volume for the past 24 hours has been at 205 million cubic meters, » Gazprom’s spokesman Sergei Kupriyanov said on Monday.
Meanwhile, Ukrainian state oil and gas company Naftogaz raised the possibility of revising its transit contract with Russia’s Gazprom through legal proceedings.
Andriy Kobolev, Naftogaz chief executive officer, said Kiev may file a lawsuit seeking revision of the gas transit contract with an arbitration court in the Swedish capital, Stockholm.
Russia cut off all gas supplies to Ukraine last week after Kiev failed to make a USD 1.95-billion payment of its 5.2-billion debt before the June 16 deadline and gas price talks between the two countries came to an end without any results.
European leaders are concerned over the gas row as Ukraine is considered as a transit for over 30 percent of Russia’s natural gas exports to Europe.
