KIEV, September 21 (Itar-Tass) —— An invitation to join the Customs Union of Russia, Belarus and Kazakhstan (CU) leaves too many questions unanswered, Ukrainian President Viktor Yanukovich said on Wednesday.
According to Yanukovich, his country has refrained from joining the Customs Union but has been seeking to get over “Russia’s repeated violations of the agreement” that have lead to problems with natural gas supplies to Europe".
He also said he did not think the so-called gas case against former Prime Minister Yulia Timoshenko was politically motivated. “We categorically denounce such allegations,” Yanukovich said in an interview with Associated Press. “I cannot predict or forecast the court ruling but our subsequent actions will depend on this ruling.” At the same time, he admitted that Timoshenko’s arrest and trial were a “great responsibility” for the country’s legal system.
