According to the minister, Ukraine's national oil and gas company Naftogaz has officially asked Russian energy giant Gazprom for a discount.

"We now have a draft directive, the discount will be smaller than in the third quarter. Final calculations are currently being made on the discount, but on average, it will be approximately $20," Novak told reporters.

Novak said he was expecting to ink a new 'winter package' deal on gas deliveries to Ukraine during trilateral talks on September 25.

Russia, Ukraine and the European Commission will hold a new round of trilateral gas talks on Friday in Brussels.
