KRYNICA-ZDROJ, Poland, September 9 (Itar-Tass) —— Ukraine will scrupulously fulfill the gas agreement with Russia until the agreement is reviewed, Ukrainian Vice-Premier, Economic Development and Trade Minister Andrei Klyuyev told a Friday press conference.
“Ukraine sticks to the gas agreement signed in 2009. We perform our function of a transit country, and gas transit to Europe is uninterrupted. We also consume Russian gas and pay for its deliveries up to the last cent,” he said.
“Ukraine will continue to honor this agreement until it achieves a revision this year or next year,” he said.
Kiev has a strong position in the dialog on the possible revision of the agreement, because Ukraine and Russia have the interstate cooperation treaty of 2001, and its provisions were thwarted in the signing of the last gas contract, he said.
“Hopefully, we will finalize the negotiations in the civilized, neighborly and dignified manner,” Klyuyev said.
