The Ukraine to put in question the gas transit issue at Stockholm Arbitration Court

The Ukraine, that is currently in legal action with Gazprom at the Stockholm Arbitration Court on the gas supply issue, is ready to put in question the contract on the transit of the Russian gas to Europe. Naftogas Ukrainy suggested Gazprom reconsider the contract, in particular, the gas transfer delivery points to the Russia-Ukraine border, increasing payment for transit and introducing obligations for transit for Gazprom.
