BERLIN, August 11 /ITAR-TASS/. Germany has urged Ukraine not to block Russian gas and oil supplies to Europe.
“The federal government hopes that Ukraine is not going to implement a measure which Prime Minister (Arseniy) Yatsenyuk announced on Friday,” German government’s spokesperson Steffen Seibert said on Monday.
Yatsenyuk threatened to put an end to Ukraine’s gas dependency on Russia after a government meeting last Friday.
“It’s not going to be easy but we simply do not have another choice,” he said, adding the Ukraine government was suggesting imposing sanctions against any transit via Ukraine’s territory, including air flights and gas transits.
