KIEV, June 06 /ITAR-TASS/. Ukraine is not ready to do without Russian gas, Ukrainian Prime Minister Arseniy Yatsenyuk said on Friday.
“I could have made a populist statement but it is not true. We cannot refrain from using Russian gas,” he told the First National TV Channel, adding that Ukraine need an additional seven billion cubic metres of gas to live through the next winter.
“I would like our relations with Russia to be normalized,” he told. “I believe that the Russian people also wants it," Yatsenyuk added.
