KIEV, February 23 (Itar-Tass) —— Ukraine’s Prime Minister Nikolai Azarov has promised that the country would find a way out if Russia stops the transit of its gas via Ukraine.
“We understand only too well that from the moment this man [Gazprom’s spokesman Sergei Kupriyanov] said his words till the moment of realization much water will flow under the bridge, a lot of time will pass,” he told journalists on Thursday and called not to dramatize the situation.
“Ukraine will find a way out this situation. So stop worrying,” he said, commenting on Russia’s plans to build gas pipelines bypassing Ukraine.
Earlier, Kupriyanov told journalists that after the South Stream project is launched and the Nord Stream project is expanded, “Ukraine’s transit significance in terms of exports of Russian gas will be next to zero.”
