“The situation in the energy is difficult. We know about the plans of the Russian Federation to cut transit in winter – even for the EU member countries. And just for this their companies were ordered to maximum pump gas to storages on the territory of Europe. We know about the plans of the Russian Federation, the aim of which is to actually cut Ukraine from all energy resources,” Yatseniuk said.
He stressed that there is a joint position between the European Union and Ukraine. Since actions of Russia threaten both global military and global energy security. Ukraine proposed a clear market approach: either the common approach of Ukraine and the European Union is adopted or this case will be decided by the Stockholm Court of Arbitration alone.
