The head of Naftogaz of Ukraine, Yuriy Vitrenko, said at a briefing on Sunday that Kiev insists that this autumn European companies should book gas volumes for transit through the territory of Ukraine for the long term. According to him, even if the contract with Gazprom is extended, this is not sufficienta guarantee that a sufficient amount of gas will be pumped through Ukraine.

“But at the same time we say, and the German side said this, that we are really ready to talk about extending the current contract (with Gazprom), “Vitrenko stressed, adding that the company is ready to discuss contracts with European companies as well.
