RUSSIA and Serbia can peacefully and constructively agree on further conditions for the delivery of this energy source in the next six months, as long as the contract on gas deliveries is extended, Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov said.
– Yesterday, a detailed, constructive and friendly conversation was held with President Vučić. For our Serbian friends, the main issue was the extension of the current gas contract for half a year. It has a fixed formula for calculating the price. We know that in long-term contracts, the formation of the price follows a formula based on the price of oil and oil derivatives, and of course, it is essentially different from the way of forming the price on the spot markets – stated Peskov.
He added that in the next six months, Serbia will receive gas at an extremely favorable price for natural gas, which will enable it to overcome the winter period.
– And during that time, economic entities will peacefully and constructively, as the President said yesterday, agree on the continuation of the contract – said Peskov.
He added that the Russian president accepted the invitation to visit Serbia next year and that the time of the visit would be coordinated through diplomatic channels.
Let us remind you, the 19th meeting of the two presidents was held in Sochi yesterday. After the meeting, Vučić said that in the next six months, Serbia will pay for gas at the same price as before – 270 dollars, and that an agreement was reached with the Russian side, a salvation for Serbia, because we will have no problems with gas, electricity or with heating and overall supply.
