Khoroshkovsky: Ukraine may lose case on Russian gas contracts if it appeals to international arbitration court
He added that a"high and unfair price stimulates energy saving, the adoption of a tough position, and the competitiveness of our products."
Khoroshkovsky said that Ukraine still relies on a fair gas price. And the only way that can currently protect Ukraine from a disadvantageous contract is to reduce the amount of gas imports and switch to its own coal, while reducing gas consumption, he said.
"Although this is a partial violation of the 'take or pay' principle, but in this case it's a lesser violation," Khoroshkovsky said.
