Ukraine Gas Transit Fees Rise

Gazprom will pay Ukraine $2.75 billion in transit fees this year, up from $2.6 billion last year, a senior company official said Monday.

Ukraine will pay an average of $280 per 1,000 cubic meters of gas this year, said the executive, Anatoly Podmyshalsky, who is in charge of dealing with the former Soviet republics. That will be an increase from last year's average of $250 because of the higher oil price, which Gazprom uses to determine how much it will charge for gas.


… we have a small favor to ask. As you may have heard, The Moscow Times, an independent news source for over 30 years, has been unjustly branded as a "foreign agent" by the Russian government. This blatant attempt to silence our voice is a direct assault on the integrity of journalism and the values we hold dear.

We, the journalists of The Moscow Times, refuse to be silenced. Our commitment to providing accurate and unbiased reporting on Russia remains unshaken. But we need your help to continue our critical mission.

Your support, no matter how small, makes a world of difference. If you can, please support us monthly starting from just $2. It's quick to set up, and you can be confident that you're making a significant impact every month by supporting open, independent journalism. Thank you.
