The former head of the national oil and gas stock company "Naftogas Ukrainy," Yurii Boiko, notes that the Ukrainian side will agree to the overpriced gas deliveries in no circumstances, reported.

In particular, he is convinced that 160 dollars per one thousand cubic meters will bring Ukraine to its knees. The maximum price that our industry can withstand is 80-90 dollars.

More of that Mr Boiko noted that "gas, which belongs to the Russian 'Gasprom', is annually pumped into the Ukrainian storage in order to enlarge gas imports to Europe at the period of winter seasonal peak demands. There will be no changes this year, I am sure, the gas has not disappeared, and there are about 8 milliards of cubic meters."

The former head of the national stock company "Naftogas Ukrainy" also informed that police has finished examining the activity of "Naftogas." "After the head have retired, some shortcomings can always be found, but they are just shortcomings," noted Boiko.

We remind, the prices on gas, imported to Ukraine from Russia, can be changed from 60 dollars up to 160 dollars per one thousand cubic meters in 2006. The Ukrainian side studies this information at the moment and is preparing some quotations for the possible transit prices.
