LONDON, October 15 (Itar-Tass) - Kiev’s strategic goal is to completely stop imports of natural gas from Russia, Konstantin Yeliseyev, Ukraine’s ambassador to the European Union and the Ukrainian president’s adviser, said in London on Tuesday.
“Now, Ukraine has considerably reduced imports of Russian gas to 25-27 percent of its overall energy balance,” he noted. “In 2013, there were months, for instance March, when we did not buy a single cubic meter of gas from Russia.”
“Our strategic goal is to become absolutely independent from Russian gas. The first step to this has already been done when Gazprom lost its monopolist position on the Ukrainian market,” he said.
