DONETSK, March 17. /ITAR-TASS/. The calls of some politicians and public figures to stop payments for Russian gas are wrong. This can throw into chaos the situation in Ukraine, Sergei Taruta, the chairman of the Donetsk regional state administration, told a briefing on Monday. He said obligations under agreements should be honoured.
Commenting on the situation in Crimea, the governor has said it is for politicians, leaders of the Ukrainian state and the countries that are guarantors of Ukraine’s territorial integrity to work on the settlement of the situation. “The Ukrainian side should not give pretexts for provocations,” he said.
