Ukraine and Russia do not consider reduction of the rate for Russian gas transit via territory of Ukraine, Energy Minister Yuri Boiko said at a joint briefing with EU commissioner Gunter Ettinger.

"We do not consider the variant of reduction of transit rate during these negotiations," the minister said.

Boiko said that a working group operating in Russia was studying a wide range of issues that were raised after a meeting between the presidents of Ukraine and Russia on September 24.

He also underlined that the agreement on the issue of the gas price for Ukraine will be reached soon. "Results will be very soon, as we were set a task to find a compromise before the start of the heating season," Boiko said. "It is planned that this question will be worked out by the next meeting between the presidents," he added.
