Russia’s gas company Gazprom and Ukraine’s Naftogaz signed a deal enabling the Ukrainian company to pay for Russian gas shipments in Russian rubles.
The agreement was signed by Gazprom’s CEO Alexei Miller and Ukrainian Energy and Coal Minister Yuriy Boyko. They also discussed bilateral cooperation, suggesting that negotiations on Russian gas prices for Ukraine could be completed before the end of the year.
