The Russian side stated about the readiness to increase Russian gas export transit volume via Ukraine and Central Asian gas supplies under the Ukrainian-Turkmen contract. The Russian national gas producer Gazprom is also ready to make additional gas supplies to fully meet the needs of the country, reported Itar-Tass.

Up to six billion cubic meters of gas export supplies may be made from Ukraine to Europe.

The company noted that the Russian side has made its proposals on the main terms of supplies and gas transit in 2006. These terms correspond to the earlier reached agreements on transfer to the payment for gas transit and supplies by funds on the prices and tariffs corresponding to European prices.

The Ukrainian side offers not to change anything and preserve the terms of Russian gas transit and supplies in 2006 as this year.

It is decided to set up a working group on the level of experts of Gazprom and Naftogaz Ukrainy that should coordinate on the level of the companies the main provisions of a protocol on gas transit and supplies in 2006 by September 10.
