KIEV, October 30. /TASS/. Ukraine’s President Pyotr Poroshenko has held a telephone conversation with the new President of the European Commission, Jean-Claude Juncker, who gets town to his duties as of November 1, the presidential press service said.
They discussed the situation in the much-troubled Eastern regions of the country, with Poroshenko complaining that “the non-compliance with the bilateral ceasefire regime” on the past of East-Ukrainian self-defence forces and their plans to hold “illegitimate elections on November 2” violate the Minsk agreements on peace settlement.
They also looked at the so-called micro-financial aid the European Union has promised to Ukraine.
“Poroshenko said Ukraine was awaiting two installments of aid in the amount of 760 million euro before the yearend and it realized it should have an efficient government that would guarantee transparent utilization of the monies,” the report said.
“The interlocutors also mentioned the trilateral consultations on natural gas underway in Brussels and they pointed out the importance of introduction of uninterrupted supplies of Russian gas to Ukraine and assuring the European energy security,” the press service said.
