Gas prices to remain high for Ukraine

      RBC, 26.06.2006, Moscow 16:59:13.A rollback in prices on gas supplies to Ukraine is impossible, Valery Yazev, head of the State Duma committee for energy, transportation and communications told journalists today, commenting on the statement made by the Ukraine's ex-PM Yulia Timoshenko regarding a possible revision of the gas supply agreements with Russia. Her statement is aimed at pleasing Ukrainian voters, he noted. "She wants to appear as a fighter for low gas prices, but the agreement can be revised only during three-way negotiations between Gazprom, Naftogaz Ukrainy and RosUkrEnergo. We will insist on market gas prices because we are ready to pay a market price for the gas transit," Yazev said. He noted that the time for Russia to pay for Europe's energy security through supplying cheap gas had passed.

      Yazev admits to a possibility of unauthorized gas tapping by Ukraine. "It is proven that Ukraine has not stored full gas reserves," he concluded.
