The negotiations on long-term five-year contract between Ukraine and Russia in the gas sphere will not start until Ukraine pays all debts to the Russian Federation and companies-suppliers. The total debt of Ukraine for gas makes about $2.5 milliard.

The director of the Ukrainian institute of energy researches Kostyantyn Borodin said at the press conference in “InterMedia consulting” media hall.

"The negative tendency is that the suppression of this fact leads to increase of debts," he noted.

He also noted that the Russian side is actively preparing for a gas war that will be started this autumn.
