Russia backs
Ukraine into a corner

Russian Ambassador
to Ukraine Mykhail Zurabov recently mentioned that it would be impossible to set
up a consortium based on the Ukrainian gas transmission network because of
Ukraine’s membership in the Europenan Union Energy Charter.

This membership
means that Ukraine is obliged to introduce European energy norms and
regulations, including the third antimonopoly package. The most senior Russian
diplomat in Ukraine mentioned that if Ukraine really wants to have reduced gas
prices then the establishment of consortium should take priority and Ukraine
should withdraw from the EU Energy Charter.
