Ukraine is planning to cut natural gas purchases from Russia to around 20 billion cubic meters (bcm) and import some 5 bcm of gas via a reverse flow from Europe in 2013, deputy board chairman of National JSC Naftogaz Ukrainy Vadym Chuprun has told a press conference in Kyiv on Friday.

"We will buy 27.5 bcm of gas from Russia this year… At first we though of purchasing 24 bcm in 2013, and now we are going to buy some 20 bcm," he said.

Chuprun also said that currently Ukraine is receiving gas from Germany via a reverse flow at a price that is $100 lower than that of Russia's Gazprom. In connection with this, Ukraine is planning to increase the volumes of reverse gas supplies from Europe.
