The consideration was extended at the request of the Ukraine that the reform aimed at a complete reform of the gas sector of Ukraine in accordance with legislation of the European Union and the Energy Community.

In addition, it is noted that the current legislation of Ukraine is based on the principle of free fair competition and to ensure security of natural gas supply in the interests of consumers.

Later Vitrenko reported that the transit costs for Gazprom through Ukraine to 2016 will increase three times. However, if Gazprom wants to reduce the unit cost of transit, he just needs to make the transit through Ukraine.
