As Ukraine has systematically violated its commitments on payments for natural gas supplies from Russia, Moscow sees no sense in extending a Russian-Ukrainian agreement on a gas price discount to the second quarter of 2014, a Russian Energy Ministry spokesperson said.

"Ukraine has still not made current payments at the reduced price and has still not cleared its debt for 2013," the spokesperson told Interfax-Ukraine.

"If the things keep going this way, what's the point in extending the agreement on gas supplies at reduced prices? No point at all," he said.
