MOSCOW (Reuters) - Russian Energy Minister Alexander Novak said on Tuesday he believed Kiev should pay for the supplies of Russian gas to rebel-held regions of Ukraine, RIA news agency reports.

His comments may mark a change of stance in Moscow where Russian officials have recently said Russian gas supplies for east Ukraine regions controlled by Moscow-backed rebels could be exempted from the contract with Kiev.
