Ukraine is constantly in talks with Russia on reduction of imported gas prices. In addition, Ukraine successfully implements a program for increasing its energy independence, vice Prime Minister of Ukraine Yuri Boiko said in interview with Channel 5.

"We are constantly in talks with partners. We show them that consumption of expensive Russian gas has been significantly reduced this year. Second, we buy gas in Europe, where it is cheaper. Also, we increase our own production," Boiko is quoted by his press office.

Vice Prime Minister added that selling expensive gas to Ukraine, Russia, in fact, is losing Ukrainian market.

He added that participants of the talks on cooperation with the Customs Union do not touch upon energy prices as Ukraine is not a member of this association.
