Russia, Ukraine to comply with gas accords

      RBC, 08.06.2011, Moscow 10:52:08.Russia and Ukraine have confirmed their commitment to comply with the existing agreements on Russian natural gas supplies to Ukraine and gas transit via Ukraine, Russian Prime Minister Vladimir Putin said late Tuesday after a meeting of the Russian-Ukrainian Economic Cooperation Committee.

      Russia will keep its discount on gas price for Ukraine, which enabled Ukraine to save $2.9bn in 2010 and $2.1bn in January-April, he added.

      The formula used to calculate the gas price for Ukraine does not differ from the formula used for other European countries, Putin said. The transit tariff rises commensurate with the gas price, he added.

      Meanwhile, the two countries have agreed to set up a working group to discuss the gas issue, Putin also said.
