Kiev Again Rejects Russia’s Gas Discount Compromise Offer (Ukraine Energy Minister)

KIEV, August 29 (RIA Novosti) – Ukraine still refuses to negotiate Russia’s proposed discount of $100 per 1,000 billion cubic meters of gas, Ukrainian Energy Minister Yuriy Prodan said Friday.

Prodan also dismissed as “baseless” Russia’s concerns that Ukraine will tap Europe-bound transit gas from its pipeline network amid expected gas shortages in winter.

Παράλληλα, εξαγοράζονται μεγάλες ευρωπαϊκές εταιρείες διανομής, ενώ υπερπηδώνται κάποια εμπόδια που θέτουν οι Βρυξέλλες. Η αγορά όμως αλλάζει, εξαιτίας του αμερικανικού σχιστολιθικού αερίου.
