Leader of the Regions Party Viktor Yanukovych thinks that Ukraine should considerably increase its own gas production volumes. "We should raise our gas production volumes," he told journalists in Sumy on Wednesday.

Yanukovych said that this would not only accommodate economic growth, but also strengthen Ukraine's independence.

"This issue [of Ukraine's own gas production] will be of a high priority," he added.
