EurActiv.com: Ukraine invites EU, Russia to co-manage its pipelines
Ukrainian Prime Minister Mykola Azarov has called for establishing an international consortium consisting of Ukraine, Russia and the European Union to modernise and manage the Ukrainian natural gas transport system.
Azarov said in comments published in a German daily last weekend that the Ukrainian government had proposed transferring control of the gas transport system to a trilateral consortium. He writes that such an arrangement would "ensure its transparent and fair administration and be engaged in its modernisation, which will cost €4.5 billion."
