With Russians there exist none non-political issues. And any sort of decision which is ratified in our two-sided relationship – if one may call it a relationship, Kremlin perceives only through a political prism,” stated Yatseniuk. “What did Kremlin have in mind? Obviously, it was to carry out an energy blockade of Ukraine,” he is convinced. “Therefore, it is because of gas that we found ourselves in a position – and together with our European and American partners took a series of steps,” stated Yatseniuk. “We diversified the delivery of gas and transfered to providing 60% of gas from the European Union; decreased the actual price; saved up to a million dollars on the difference in price between the Russian price and the price of the EU countries; went to court; signed a three-sided agreement, through which Europe became involved in delivering gas – and in principle, balanced our gas market,” he specified. Right now in Ukraine’s storage areas of gas, there are 11.7 million cubic meters of gas,” stated Yatseniuk.
