“We are ready to discuss all problems with our Russian partners. But
there are three “No’s.” We are saying ‘No’ to the Customs Union, another
‘No’ to a military alliance, and one more ‘No’ to the Russian
language’s status as a second official language,” he said in the Freedom
of Speech program on ICTV television.

Ukraine must also become less dependent on Russia as a gas consumer.
Ukraine extracts 21 billion cubic meters of gas each year, he said.
“Poland consumes 14 billion cubic meters, but the Polish economy is
three times larger than Ukrainian. Therefore, when we are saying that we
are poor, we are not right. We are a rich nation,” Yatseniuk said.

He also said that Ukraine must sign an agreement on political association and free trade zone with the European Union.
