(MENAFN) Ukraine's Naftogaz energy firm's deputy chairman, Vadim Chuprun, announced that in 2013, the country would cut its imports of Russian natural gas to 20 billion cubic meters from 27.5 billion in 2012, reported Xinhua News.

Chuprun said that originally, Kiev was supposed to purchase 24 billion cubic meters of gas from Russia next year, however, the country changed these plans as it intends to increase gas supplies from Europe.

In the January-September period, Ukraine slashed its imports of Russian gas by 30.9 percent on annual basis.

He added that Ukraine, which also buys natural gas from Germany with a price cheaper by USD100 than Russian gas, will acquire 5 billion cubic meters from the European country in 2013.

It is worth noting that Russia sells its gas to Ukraine for USD430 per thousand cubic meters.
