Russia Considers Export Tax on Gas to Ukraine

[2011-05-05 16:45:47]

Russia may reintroduce export duty on natural-gas exports to Ukraine, a move that could result in Ukraine paying 30 percent more, Kommersant reported.

In an April 4 letter to Russian Prime Minister Vladimir Putin, Finance Minister Alexei Kudrin proposed increasing state revenue by changing the country's stance on export duties for natural gas to some foreign countries, the newspaper said, citing the letter.

Russia currently sells gas without export duty to Belarus, to Ukraine and to Turkey, Kommersant said.
