NOVO-OGARYOVO, August 27, /ITAR-TASS/. Russia has always been and will remain a reliable provider of energy resources and hopes Ukraine will comply with all of its liabilities, Russian presidential press-secretary Dmitry Peskov told the media on Wednesday.
“We do hope that the Ukrainian colleagues will comply with their outstanding liabilities in terms of ensuring unhampered transit of natural gas to consumers in Western Europe,” Peskov said.
He recalled that Putin on Tuesday said Russia had noted with satisfaction the readiness to go ahead with gas talks with Ukraine and the EU within days and counted on the Ukrainian negotiators’ constructive approach.
About Ukrainian Prime Minister Arseny Yatsenyuk’s statement to the effect the transit of Russian gas through Ukraine may be terminated next winter, Peskov said that “Yatsenyuk is the man who mentioned Ukraine’s plans for terminating the transit, which drew a firm response from Russia’s and Ukraine’s partners in the West, who hurried to warn the Ukrainian counterparts about the impermissibility of such statements.
