You're reading: Expert: Ukraine behind deadlines of meeting commitments to Energy Community
on social media

"None of the obligations was carried out in full. It seems like both sides had different expectations of Ukraine’s membership of the Energy Community. Ukraine was seeking funds and tools to block the construction of the South Stream pipeline, while the European side, first of all, expected reform in Ukraine’s energy sector," she said.

In turn, Dixi Group expert Iryna Petrenko stressed that Ukraine had passed amendments to its legislation to meet the requirements of the Energy Community but never approved the necessary subordinate regulatory acts for its implementation. For instance, the procedure for obtaining access to the Ukrainian gas transport system has not been approved yet.

"If the situation develops in the same way, only the Ukrainian side will lose… We should agree on our positions and play a fair game," Dixi Group Program Manager Roman Nytsovych said.
