Reduction of tariffs for the Russian gas transit is not expected, energy and coal industry minister Eduard Stavytsky told a briefing in the Cabinet of Ministers of Ukraine, ForUm correspondent reports.

"We are negotiating with the Russian Federation, but now the issue on reduction of gas tariffs is not discussed," he said.

At the same time, the minister suggested that in the future the cost of transit may be less due to the fact that from January 1, 2014 the gas price will amount to 268.5 dollars per 1.000 cubic meters, which will influence the cost of transit. Nevertheless, Stavytsky failed to name exact timing of this possible change.
