Russia's Gazprom Asks Ukraine For Volume Guarantees Through March

Reuters

MOSCOW, Dec 4 (Reuters) - Russian gas producer Gazprom said on Friday it had asked Ukraine's Naftogaz to provide a guarantee on the volumes of gas it intended to purchase from Gazprom until the end of March.

Gazprom added in a statement after the two sides had met in Berlin that Naftogaz intended to ask for a gas price discount for the first quarter of next year.

"Given the tough financial position of Naftogaz Ukraine, one should not expect pre-payment and resumption of Russian gas supplies before the end of the year," the statement cited Gazprom CEO Alexei Miller as saying.
