Ukraine may refuse from Russian natural gas

 

Ukraine's Prime Minister Mykola Azarov said that Kiev may replace Russian gas with alternative sources of energy in the future. The reason for refusing from the import of Russian gas is high prices, the official said.

As Azarov said in an interview with Russian journalists, due to the current level of prices, Ukraine is forced to cut its gas imports." In the future, Ukraine may refuse from buying natural gas at such prices from Russia," said the Ukrainian Prime Minister. 

In 2011, the country imported about 40 billion cubic meters of gas, and then cut the volume to only 25 billion cubic meters in 2012, bigness.ru said. 

The price of Russian gas for Ukraine in 2013 amounted to about $400-410 per thousand cubic meters.
