Vladimir Putin on Ukraine’s debt for gas: We can’t wait forever

45

Russian President Vladimir Putin said that the decision to return in a month to the issue of advance payments for Russian gas has nothing to do with the upcoming presidential elections in Ukraine. "We can not wait forever ... We do not want to undermine the Ukrainian economy, nor question the reliability of transit to Europe," - said the head of state on the program "News on Saturday with Sergei Brilev" on the TV channel "Russia 1".




Vladimir Putin on Ukraine’s debt for gas: We can’t wait forever


During the interview, Vladimir Putin noted that the special operation of the Russian Federation in the North Caucasus cannot be compared with the actions of Kiev in the east of Ukraine.


“The difference is enormous, and it lies in the fact that in the North Caucasus we are faced with the aggression of international terrorism. In fact, they were formed, well-trained gangs that were supplied and armed from abroad. This is a big difference, ”said the president on the air of Russia 1.


Military in Crimea

Vladimir Putin also said that the Russian soldiers who were present in the Crimea during the recent events on the peninsula will receive state awards, but their names will not be made public for some time.


“I think that we will not find out in the near future, but of course there will be state awards,” he said.


Relations with the West

In addition, the president expressed hope for the normalization of relations with the West. Answering the question whether relations between Moscow and Western countries can be adjusted by the end of this year, the head of state said: “It does not depend on us. Or not only from us. It depends on our partners. ”


“I believe that there is nothing that would prevent normalization and normal cooperation,” Putin said.


The president also called on European countries to help the Ukrainian economy and develop measures to finance the budget.


“We urge all European countries, all countries that are interested in supporting the Ukrainian economy, to join the process of helping Ukraine and work out measures aimed at financing the budget,” said Vladimir Putin.


Gas supplies to Ukraine

The decision to return in a month to the issue of advance payments for Russian gas has nothing to do with the upcoming presidential elections in Ukraine, but Russia "cannot wait forever," the president said.


“It’s not about the election at all. We do not associate the economy with the political process in Ukraine. We just had to get money for the gas supplied in March on April 7, we did not wait for them, I repeat once again - this is $ 525 million ... this is by the way at the lowest price, with all the discounts, ”said Vladimir Putin.


The head of state stressed that Russia does not want "to undermine the Ukrainian economy, nor to question the reliability of transit to Europe."


Rumors about the return of Yanukovych

Answering the question of how reliable is the information about the possible appearance of President Viktor Yanukovych ousted from power at Easter in Ukraine, Vladimir Putin said: “You have to ask him that.”

          Thank you, Hans51 RU. It is high time. The level of Ukrainian sovereignty can be checked on a monometer in the crane unit of the main gas pipeline. And if he starts to show 0.0A, then the Poltava and Lviv women themselves will kill these unfinished Bandera men with mortal combat, since they cannot even cook dumplings on the stove. There is no forest there, and soon there will be no coal, but you won’t warm much on the burner ...

          And rest assured, activists of the Right Sector are not activists, they themselves, in six months, will drag both Yarosh and Tyagnibok and their lady with a scythe ...

    Russia does not want to “either undermine the Ukrainian economy, or question the reliability of transit to Europe

    In the entire Ukrainian mess, this is the main issue. Ukrainians think, believe and eat up that the Russians are brotherly people. When it comes to gas. And industry oriented to export to Russia. In all other cases, Russia is the enemy, and we are not brothers.

    And Europe is like a drug addict. And he hates Russia, and cannot live without it.
    Europe would have hit, so you don’t want to crawl for gas on the karachik.

      And the most offensive thing for the West is that gas from Russia accounts for only a third or a quarter of Europe's needs, while oil supplies are much higher, and alternative green energy sources turned out to be an epic derm, and nuclear power plants shrank. And it seems that they could reorient and restore everything, but there are no denyuzhkov. And the problems of reorientation lie in a "different" plane, and with engineers there are more menagers than inventors, and in their eyes they have not a distant space but carbovanzi.

    As for me, the valve had to be shut off on April 7th. The same crime is to sponsor the junta. If there were no gas, you would look and you would not throw an army at civilians, you would be more compliant.

    Under Khasavyurt agreements, Chechnya was effectively granted independence. How its rulers, under American leadership, disposed of it, and how we ended up for them we know. Under the Bialowieza Accords, Ukraine was granted de facto independence. How its rulers, under American leadership, disposed of it, and what we see is where everything is going. So, despite the statement of uv. President, we can say that in general this is the same thing, and the final will obviously be the same. But before that there was still Georgia with a tie eater. Well, life doesn’t teach people anything, it’s just amazing to watch it.

    gas is mainly consumed by industry.
    It goes without saying that the local is mainly for local consumption and for communal workers. By the way, they have accumulated large debts (people are not able to pay it even at the old rates)
    Turning off the gas will stop the industry. Let's look at the map - it does not threaten the memory.
    They generally have a gas stranglehold on the drum. She holds only SE where at least something else works or pretends that it works. In particular, by the way, in the center is located the nurse of Ukraine - metallurgy (where gas is not bad) and the chemical also in the southeast.
    In short, it is difficult to "hit" the memory with a gas shutdown. In Kiev - while the pipe to the EU, too.
    All "strikes" will be in the SE. And only a weak ricochet across Kiev .. and the memory do not care.

    The exact amount of natural gas produced in Ukraine cannot be traced.
    This opinion was expressed by the deputy director of the Gas Institute of the National Academy of Sciences of Ukraine Oleksandr PYATNICHKO during the round table “European Gas Market: Is Revolution Coming?”, Organized by the Gorshenin Institute. (13.10.2011g.)
    Ukraine produces enough gas for its own economy, and most of the Russian gas was used for smuggling into Europe. Many large Ukrainian states owe their origin to this scheme.
    In a situation where the price of Russian gas rises dramatically, its resale to the West is already becoming unprofitable. Therefore, having lost such a possibility of criminal enrichment, a number of groups within the country may be interested in redirecting Ukrainian gas to the needs of the Ukrainian economy. But there are also forces interested in the purchase and transit of Russian gas through Ukrainian territory.

    Your problems, patsak, will make him laugh.
