The Russian Energy Ministry has not received any proposals from Ukraine on resuming gas supplies from Russia to the country, Russian Deputy Energy Minister Anatoly Yanovsky said Thursday.

Gazprom Offers Poland to Extend Gas Transit Contract - Deputy Chairman
BERLIN (Sputnik) — Earlier in June, the Ukrainian national oil and gas company Naftogaz proposed to the Russian energy giant Gazprom that they sign additions to their gas supplies contract covering deliveries over the next three quarters, stating that Gazprom could become a Ukrainian supplier once its prices had become lower than those offered by its European partners.

"We have not received any proposals at a ministry level," Yanovsky told reporters.

Previously, Russian Energy Minister Alexander Novak ruled out any amendments to the existing contract between Gazprom and Naftogaz.

In November 2015, Ukraine suspended purchases of Russian gas, saying the prices offered by its European partners were much lower than those offered by Moscow.

On Saturday, Russian President Vladimir Putin said that Russia and Ukraine would resume normal gas cooperation once Kiev realizes that it no longer has a monopoly on gas transit to Europe.
