Currently, “Naftogaz” is already working with two companies - nimetskoyuRWE and French “Gaz de France”. There are “deals and other, similar in size, weight and transparency of companies”.
“If a German company could buy gas at $ 300, maybe it makes sense to kuplyala German company, kept in storage in Ukraine. Why “Naftogaz” to buy gas for 385 dollars even if others are buying it much cheaper? “- said Kobolyev.
