The statement of the President of Ukraine Petro Poroshenko that the country off Russian gas needle is no more than populism. This was stated by the Chairman of the political Council of the party “Opposition platform? For life” Viktor Medvedchuk in the air “the Big interview” on TV channel “112 Ukraine”.
“The statement Poroshenko that we jumped off the Russian gas needle is no more than populism. And nothing more than an explanation of their policies that we are moving away from Russia, and we do everything in order to forget Russia, its products, and in this situation the gas,” he said.
Medvedchuk also stressed that today in Ukraine the cost of gas definitely overpriced. “Let’s start with the fact that today the Russian gas that we buy and call it Swiss, Slovak, Austrian, Polish, Hungarian European, it’s not true, it is wickedness. Today, we buy gas, where the formation of prices is used the formula “düsseldorf+”. This is the German hub for the sale of gas. That is, we take the price of gas at the “düsseldorf+”, and to the border of Ukraine is 1500 km. you Pay for, and then invest in the price of gas, and then the price of the tariff for the population this cost is 142 USD added to the cost of gas that we have got a bargain there, not in Russia”, – said the Chairman of the political Council of the party “Opposition platform? For life.”
However, he added, is actually the gas that goes in transit through the territory of Ukraine, to the European border, at the border stops. “There is a point – Velke-kapushany (Slovakia – Ukraine), and he remains in Ukraine. He’s going nowhere. And why we believe the price from Dusseldorf, and then this price invest in tariff is an open secret. Because this is the price at which structures tied to the government, earn the money, but beat off this money on fees for citizens of Ukraine. And this is a price reduction, 40-42 of the dollar”, – said Medvedchuk.
Also, according to him, everyone understands that Russian natural gas other gas. “And it goes on all territory of Ukraine. Until January 1, we have the contract for the supply of gas, and if we bought gas under this contract from the needle which we jumped, according to the President, then we could work the price in different time periods – 230-260 dollars. And we pay 8550 UAH. Why?” – added the politician.
Earlier, Medvedchuk said that the businessmen who support the current government, has established the scheme of gas supplies to Ukraine, which allows them to receive greater profit, paid from the wallets of ordinary Ukrainians.
