Ukraine's state energy company Naftogaz has paid Russia's gas monopoly Gazprom $1.078 billion for the December gas deliveries, the company said on Thursday.

It said the gas price in the fourth quarter of 2010 was about $253 per 1,000 cubic meters.

The first-, second, and third-quarter prices were $305, $236 and $248, respectively.

In early December Moscow and Kiev signed an agreement to secure gas transits via Ukrainian territory.

Under the deal 112 billion cubic meters of gas is to be transited annually over the next five years.

On January 1, 2009, Gazprom cut gas supplies to the EU through Ukraine in a row over prices. Deliveries resumed on January 19.
