KIEV, December 10. /ITAR-TASS/. Kiev sees its top priority in settling the gas issue in its relations with Russia, Ukrainian President Viktor Yanukovich said on Tuesday at a meeting with his predecessors, Leonid Kravchuk, Leonid Kuchma and Viktor Yushchenko, telecast by the First National television channel.
“First of all, it is necessary to find a solution to the gas problem,” he said. “Ukraine cannot pay this price for gas.” He said the current gas price for Ukraine “is above the average European price by more than 200 U.S. dollars,” he noted, adding that it had incurred more than 20 billion U.S. dollar losses in the past 3.5 years.
“This is the issue to be settled first of all,” Yanukovich stressed. “Russia has already agreed to discuss this subject, since it would face similar economic losses if it loses the Ukrainian market.
