STATEMENT оf the NJSC “Naftogaz of Ukraine” Chairman Oleg Dubyna

Considering and evaluating events of the last two days, I would like to note that the negotiations with our Russian colleagues have not had any progress to the moment. This fact gave an impression that Gazprom OJSC’s representatives have not had appropriate authorities and a mandate to sign any contracts with the NJSC “Naftogaz of Ukraine” delegation. The negotiations are fruitless for the time being, the Russian delegation appeared to be unready for the talks to go on.

We believe that the Russian party will be relevantly commissioned to continue the negotiations and take the constructive position in order to find out the mutually beneficial resolution and to sign the corresponding long-term contracts.
