The price Ukraine is paying for reverse supplies of gas from Europe via Slovakia is below $385 per 1,000 cubic meters, Naftogaz Ukrainy CEO Andriy Kobolev told journalists in Kyiv on Wednesday.
"Concerning Slovakia: a gas pipeline has been launched with capacity for roughly 10 billion cubic meters a year. If fully utilized, it will substitute for approximately 40% of our imports. We are not disclosing the price, but it is below $385 per 1,000 cubic meters. I won't tell the exact price. That's a commercial secret," Kobolev said.
Ukraine-EU-Russia talks on gas are scheduled to be held next week, he said.
