“I believe that the high gas prices have given a tremendous impetus
to our industry. We are gradually making our business stop consuming
free gas, and think of high technologies and modernization of our
enterprises,” he said on Saturday during the 9th Yalta Annual Meeting
organized by Yalta European Strategy (YES) in partnership with the
Victor Pinchuk Foundation.

According to him, each enterprise should have a modernization plan agreed with the government.

In turn, Prime Minister Mykola Azarov retorted: “On the one hand it
is true, but on the other hand it’s not so simple. Those extra $5
billion that we are paying could be spent on economic development and
infrastructure projects.”
