As of today Ukraine buys Russian gas at discriminating price, President of Ukraine Viktor Yanukovych told the final press conference of the year, ForUm correspondent reports. According to the head of state, the continuation of consumption of gas at such price will lead to total collapse of the economy of the country.

"We insist on reduction of gas price to European level, and taking into account Kharkiv agreements we demand additional $100 discount. I believe the gas price should not exceed $250," Yanukovych said.

The President reminded that current gas price is 515 dollars minus 100 dollars discount of Kharkiv agreements.

Yanukovych noted that Ukraine in the negotiations also favors establishing a gas consortium and allocating responsibility for the work of the gas transit system (GTS) between Ukraine, Russia and Europe. "We're talking about the GTS modernization, as well as maintaining the volume of gas flow at the current level and in the future - an increase of gas pumping," he said.
