MOSCOW, June 14. /ITAR-TASS/. Ukraine’s parliament-appointed Prime Minister Arseniy Yatsenyuk wants to disrupt gas talks with Russia, Alexei Pushkov, the head of the Russian State Duma Committee for International Affairs, said on Friday, June 13.
“As a U.S. puppet, Yatsenyuk is trying to disrupt the gas talks,” Pushkov tweeted on his page on Friday.
“Both Europe and Ukraine are going to lose. But Yatsenyuk is not caring a dime about that. He is Obama’s servant,” Pushkov wrote.
Gazprom’s Chief Executive Officer Alexei Miller said the day before that Arseniy Yatsenyuk was to blame for the disruption of trilateral gas talks between the European Union, Russia and Ukraine. He explained that Yatsenyuk had said that Ukraine would not pay more than 268 USD per 1,000 cu m of gas in the midst of trilateral talks between the European Union, Russia and Ukraine. Miller also said that Gazprom would no longer delay the date of transition to pre-payment in relations with Naftogaz Ukrainy. The final deadline for paying the debt is 10:00 Moscow time on June 16.
Yatsenyuk has, in turn, accused Russia of disrupting the gas talks.
