Ukrainian national joint stock company Naftogaz is negotiating with Germany to become a “direct buyer” of fuel without any mediators, Naftogaz Board Chairman Andrey Kobolev said on Tuesday, April 1.
Several gas traders have contracts with Germany. So, Naftogaz still hopes to start fuel purchases from that country on the border with Ukraine.
In the meantime, there are some obstacles in this issue, Kobolev said.
“We have a relatively clear-cut action plan, but we cannot announce it yet,” he said.
Slovakia itself takes a very cautious position on this issue. It names such variant as “one of the scenarios” and fears that Ukraine will not pay.
“Slovakia is ready to help. However, any aid is economically limited,” the Slovakian government said in March.
The price of Russian natural gas for Ukraine is $385.5 per 1,000 cubic meters starting April 1.

"As of now, the debt has reached 1.711 billion dollars," he said.
