Russia may discuss gas discount for Ukraine if asked - Energy Minister
Russia may discuss a discount on gas deliveries to Ukraine after March 31 deadline, but nobody has broached the subject yet," Energy Minister Alexander Novak said, according to RIA Novosti.
"The current discount under the so-called 'winter package' is valid until March 31," Novak said in an interview with Rossiya-24 television.
"The contract between Gazprom and Naftogas on gas deliveries for 2009-2019 envisions the possibility of a gas discount approved by the Russian government," Novak said.
"However, it is a subject of separate talks. So far, nobody has asked us for such a discount," the minister said.
