Gazprom has never denied the possibility of returning to negotiations on direct contracts for the supply of gas to Ukraine, this is a matter of negotiations and economic feasibility for the company, said the press secretary of the Russian President Dmitry Peskov.
“Gazprom has never denied this possibility. Gazprom is a reliable gas supplier; it has been, is, remains and will be. This is all a matter of negotiations and the actual economic feasibility for the company, "Peskov told reporters on Monday.
This is how he answered the question that proposals have begun to be heard in Kiev to return to negotiations with Gazprom in order to receive gas directly from Russia, and whether Russia is ready to consider such an opportunity.
The proposal to return to direct gas supplies from the Russian Federation was voiced by the co-chairman of the OPLZ faction, Yuriy Boyko, at a meeting of the conciliatory council of parliamentary factions in the Verkhovna Rada on Monday.
“I believe that we should return to direct contracts with Russian Gazprom the way Hungary did,” he said.
