bloomberg | Europe in Talks to Keep Russia-Ukraine Gas Pipeline Flowing, 10 June transit fees
One option that's been discussed is for European companies to buy and inject gas from Azerbaijan into Russian pipelines heading to Europe, according to some of the people. Such an arrangement would allow Europe to avoid the embarrassment of buying Russian gas at a time when it's trying to crimp Moscow's revenues.

"There are two factors we should always remember," Oleksiy Chernyshov, chief executive of Ukraine's state-run Naftogaz, told Bloomberg News on Monday. "One is that Ukraine has incredible infrastructure of transit and storage gas, which should be used, and Ukraine is predisposed to use this infrastructure because it brings a lot of [income]." He ruled out any plan that involved working with Russia's Gazprom PJSC, and said bringing gas from Azerbaijan "might have some future."
Russia still ships around 15 billion cubic meters of gas to Europe a year, mainly to Slovakia and Austria, where Russia is still a dominant supplier. In Austria, Russian gas has covered more than 80% of Austrian consumption for five straight months. Europe also imports Russian LNG by ship, and despite frequent debates about whether it should, it has never sanctioned Russian gas.

"I'm doing everything to find a solution that the Ukrainian gas transportation system will continue to be operational because it's a big asset and someone should be a customer," Chernyshov said. "Otherwise it's loss generating."
