Naftogaz of Ukraine CEO Oleh Dubyna and Gazprom Chief Executive Alexei Miller discussed the implementation of long-term contracts on the supply of gas and its transit at a meeting in Moscow on Tuesday, the Russian company's information department has told an UKRINFORM correspondent in Russia, Ukrinform repoirted.

Dubyna and Miller spoke about the payment by Ukraine of current gas supplies, as well as the need for Naftogaz to fill Ukraine's underground storage facilities with gas to meet its commitments on gas supply and gas transit during the 2009/2010 heating season.

"It is as yet unclear whether Naftogaz of Ukraine could be able to pay in full and on time for gas supplied in May. The payment, as everybody knows, should be made by June 7," Miller said.

He said that it was impossible to talk about the disconnection of Ukraine from gas supplies after Naftogaz signed a ten-year contract with Gazprom. "Even if it comes to the switch to advance payments [for gas], Naftogaz will decide itself how much gas it needs. They will get as much [gas] as they pay for it," Miller said.
