Kiev Ready to Sign Electricity Deal With Moscow at Russia’s Domestic Prices
Kiev expects to sign a deal on electricity supplies from Russia "soon," Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko told reporters Monday.

"I think that an agreement between two companies from Russia and Ukraine should be signed soon," he said.

On December 28, the Ukrainian president said that importing electricity to Ukraine should be carried out by state-owned companies, free of any independent intermediary.

On the same day, Ukrainian Energy Minister Volodymyr Demchishin called on Russian Energy Minister Alexander Novak to sign an agreement on the provision of electricity to Ukraine at Russia's domestic prices.

In recent weeks, Ukraine introduced nation-wide energy saving measures, as the country is experiencing energy shortages due to the conflict in Ukraine's eastern regions, where many of the country's coal mines are located. Ukraine is currently experiencing a lack of fuel for power generation and heating.
