KIEV, April 6 (Itar-Tass) - In order to create the gas transport consortium Ukraine should change legislation, Russian Ambassador in Kiev Mikhail Zurabov told journalists on Saturday.
“It is clear that the creation of the gas transport consortium [regardless if it is created on the bilateral or tripartite base] necessitates certain changes in Ukrainian legislation. What we observe now [the Verkhovna Rada does not work] proves that the changes in Ukrainian legislation can face certain difficulties,” Zurabov said.
The Russian ambassador said, “These changes should affect five Ukrainian laws. Certain corrections should be made to Ukraine’s international obligations.”
