"I have informed the colleague on those negotiations which are conducted today with the European Union and with Ukraine (with the Ministry of Energy) regarding a possibility of continuation of use of the gas transmission system of Ukraine taking into account need of completion of all trials and a possibility of extension of the contract in the future", - Novak has told. Earlier the head of Gazprom Alexey Miller said that Gazprom can keep transit of gas through Ukraine after 2019 of 10-15 billion cubic meters a year, but at the same time the Ukrainian side has to prove economic feasibility of the new contract for transit. Later the vice chairman of the board of Gazprom Alexander Medvedev specified that the volume of transit of the Russian gas through Ukraine after 2019 will depend on conditions of the new contract. At the same time the Minister of Energy and Coal Industry of Ukraine Igor Nasalik said that Ukraine will insist on preservation of transit of the Russian gas after 2019 of not less than 40 billion cubic meters as otherwise it will be economically unprofitable. On July 16 the President of Russia Vladimir Putin at a joint press conference with the American leader Donald Trump after negotiations in Helsinki has said that Moscow is ready to prolong the transit contract with Ukraine in case of settlement of lawsuit in the Stockholm arbitration.
