KIEV, January 12 (Itar-Tass) — Ukraine’s new parliament after the parliamentary elections next autumn will give the country back its gas pipeline network, if the current authorities hand it over to Moscow, the leader of the opposition party Front for Change, Arseny Yatsenyuk, said in an interview with Channel 5 on Thursday.
“Our Russian partners and Ukraine’s current authorities should know that we will come to power and will give an assessment to every step you’d taken,” he said.
The Ukrainian authorities “will bear political and criminal responsibility” and “we are ready only for mutual partnership relations based on equality with the Russian side,” Yatsenyuk said.
He expressed confidence that the opposition would win the upcoming parliamentary elections in October.
“We will form the government of democrats that will not allow Ukraine to divert from the European track and return to the old Soviet track. These elections will really change power in the country and lay the groundwork for the upcoming presidential election in 2015,” Yatsenyuk said.
During the rule of the former authorities Yatsenyuk served as foreign minister and as parliamentary speaker.
