The Russian natural gas that Ukraine buys from German company RWE costs the country 100 dollar per one thousand cubic meters less than the Russian gas that Ukraine buys on the border with Russia, Prime Minister Mykola Azarov said at a meeting with French business representatives in Paris on Tuesday.

"We currently buy gas from RWE and pump it through Poland, Slovakia and Hungary. This gas costs us less than the Russian gas that we buy on the border with Russia, and RWE sells us the same gas that it buys from Russia," he noted, Interfax-Ukraine informed.

"The gas, after passing through a long chain of pipelines and returning to us, is 100 dollar cheaper," he said.

Azarov said that Ukraine annually overpays Russia 7 billion dollar for gas.
