Thursday evening Russian Gazprom and Ukrainian Naftogaz finished regular round of gas negotiations with participation of Victor Khristenko, Russian Minister of industry and energy, and Ivan Plachkov, Ukrainian Minister for Fuel and Energy, during which Russian side had turned down all 12 proposals of Ukraine and sent its variant of gas agreement for 2006.

“At 10:30 p.m. we received a new variant of the contract from Gazprom and a new variant of protocol between two governments. The working group remained (in Moscow –ed.), Minister Ivan Plachkov and head of Naftogaz Oleksiy Ivchenko came back… Unfortunately, all 12 articles of Ukrainian side were not accepted,” said PM of Ukraine Yuri Yekhanurov in an interview to “Era” radio Friday.

 “I don’t want to talk about propositions of Russian side. But a new aspect appeared, very interesting one – Khristenko noted that they would like to replace Turkmen gas by Russian one,” noted Ukrainian Premier.
