President Poroshenko stressed that Russia had failed to provoke our country and destabilize the energy sector. Ukraine demonstrated to the whole world its credibility as a partner and country transiting natural gas to the European Union.
President Petro Poroshenko noted solidarity of all Ukrainians with the actions of the government aimed to ensure stable functioning of the Ukrainian gas transport system given the threats of Gazprom to terminate the implementation of the gas supply contract.
“We praise the statements made in the European Commission today by our partners, inter alia, by the German Government pointing out their understanding of who is responsible for the attempts to create this crisis situation. We are confident that the contract will not be broken. We are confident that nothing endangers transit. Ukraine once again confirmed it is a reliable gas supplier to Europe,” the President emphasized.
“Contracts do not envisage the right of their unilateral termination. Such statements of Gazprom can be explained only by the reluctance to fulfill their contractual obligations,” President Petro Poroshenko noted in a meeting in the ad hoc center.
“Reshat is a man who did not imagine life without the Ukrainian Crimea and did not imagine life without freedom. A man who could not be broken and to overcome his resistance, these criminals, these terrorists decided to kill him," the President said, reminding that "exactly four years ago the relatives saw Reshat for the last time when he went to the recruitment office to join the ranks of volunteers and defend the Ukrainian land".
