Yefremov : Ukraine and Russia will not come to 'gas war'
"There will be no war," he said in an interview on Ukrainian television's Channel 5, which was aired on Wednesday, September 7.
According to the MP, the leadership of the state promised to follow the law and not to block gas supplies to Europe.
He also said that under the 2009 contract on gas supplies, the price of gas for Ukraine would be $564 per 1,000 cubic meters.
"You know that in Q4 this year, according to the formula signed by [Russian Premier Vladimir] Putin and [Ukraine's ex-Premier Yulia] Tymoshenko, Ukraine will pay $564 for gas… They don't pay such a price even in Germany… I don't understand how a leader could sign a contract that envisages a 300% penalty," he said.
