The Russian Gazprom denies agreeing with the Naftogaz Ukrainy's to lower gas imports to 27bn m3 from the current 52bn m3 for 2013, Gazprom CEO Alexei Miller said, cited by RIA Novosti. On June 27 Yurii Boiko, minister of fuel and energy of Ukraine, said the Naftogaz Ukrainy and Gazprom had agreed gas import of 27bn cubic meters for 2013.The minister said the contract volume would be lower than 27bn m3 of gas. Alexei Miller also said that he saw no grounds to reduce gas price for Ukraine. Ukraine has long been seeking to alter the terms of the 2009 gas deal. The deal ties the price of gas to oil prices, which have risen strongly since 2009, boosting Ukraine's gas bill. Kiev insists the price and volume of its gas imports should be reduced, while Gazprom says the company sees no reasons for a gas price revision.
