You're reading: Russian Foreign Ministry’s comments about gas price for Ukraine to be insulting

on social media

“Despite the new year’s calm, the Ukrainian Foreign Ministry cannot ignore the extremely undiplomatic and insulting to Ukraine interview with our Russian counterpart, Mr. Gorban,” Head of the Information Policy Department of the Ukrainian Foreign Ministry Oleh Voloshyn said in an interview with Interfax-Ukraine while commenting on a statement by Gorban that Russia won’t lower gas price for Ukraine unless it joins the Customs Union.

The Ukrainian diplomat stressed that in talks both with the Customs Union and with the European Union, or any other international organization, Ukraine pursues exclusively its national interests.

“That’s why we absolutely do not understand a somewhat hysterical tone of Mr. Gorban, which he used in his comment concerning Ukraine’s relations with the Customs Union,” Voloshyn said.
