UPD: 20/05/2014 Medvedev considers gas price for Ukraine "rather big, but fair"
Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev does not consider the price of Russian gas for Ukraine, which is much higher than for Europe, rather big, but fair.
He said this in an interview with Bloomberg, UNIAN reports.
In particular, answering the question, does not it seem that it is "a little tough" to increase the price unilaterally from $ 268 per 1,000 cubic meters to $ 485, Medvedev said: "No, it's not tough." Medvedev also does not bother that more than this amount is paid only by Macedonia.
"We have already spoken about the price formula. This is the price that was laid in the contract, signed in 2009, and this formula calculates everything that is subject to delivery. This price, plus or minus, is comparable with other formulas that are used for deliveries to the European market. Somewhere more, somewhere less, but in general they are in a trend. But the price of 268.5 - it is absolutely preferential, therefore, when we are told "we are ready to pay at a reduced price" - excuse me, why? Why do other countries pay, why do all the EU countries pay a different price? ", Medvedev said.
At the same time, Medvedev did not agree with the journalist, who noted that the EU does not pay an average of $ 485 per thousand cubic meters, but only about $ 385, thereby Russia wants to supply gas to Ukraine at a price higher than with all of Western Europe.
"No, we need to look at how much each country pays. There are countries that pay almost on par with this one ... This is really a rather big price, I do not argue, but nevertheless there are countries that pay almost at this price, there are countries that pay somewhat less. But, once again, I emphasize, this is absolutely fair price, which was achieved during the negotiations in 2009. We did not force anyone, they signed the corresponding schedule and signed the contract. Signed it, by the way, I recall, the current applicant for the presidential post of Yulia Tymoshenko, "- said Medvedev.
As it was reported, since April, Gazprom decided to cancel all the benefits for gas supply to Ukraine, explaining this by the fact that the Ukrainian partner does not fulfill the reached agreements on repayment of debts for gas supplies. As a result, the price for Russian gas since April 2014 increased to $ 485 per thousand cubic meters from $ 268.5 in the first quarter of this year.
Ukraine recognizes the debt of $ 2.2 billion for gas supplies that took place before April 1, 2014, and is ready to pay it in 10 days only after Gazprom cuts gas prices to $ 268.5 per thousand cubic meters .
On May 13, Gazprom sent an official notification to Naftogaz Ukrainy about the transfer to the prepayment and issued a provisional account for June in the amount of $ 1.66 billion, based on the contractual supply volume of 114 million cubic meters per day.
UPD: 20/05/2014 "Medvedev did not guarantee the territorial integrity of Ukraine: We did not undertake such obligations"
Russia has never undertaken the obligation to preserve the territorial integrity of Ukraine, and accordingly can not and will not give any guarantees.
This was stated by Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev in an interview with Bloomberg, reports Glavkom
"We do not have to guarantee anything to anyone, because we never assumed any obligations on this topic, but we proceed from the fact that the most important task is to calm the situation on the territory of Ukraine, not to guarantee something to someone, but to calm this situation, "Medvedev said, quoted by the press service of the Russian government.
"Let our partners in the dialogue, including the European Union and the United States of America, pro-guaranty something - that they will not interfere in the internal affairs of Ukraine, let them guarantee to us, our partners in the West, that they will not involve Ukraine in the North Atlantic Alliance, that those people who live in the east, will not lose the opportunity to speak in Russian, that some crazy Right sector will not come, will not start to cut them. Let our partners progarantirovat anything on this subject, "- he added.
UPD: 20/05/2014 Medvedev voiced Kremlin's position: Russia is unlikely to recognize election results in Ukraine
Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev said that the situation in Ukraine does not give confidence that the presidential elections will be held at the proper level.
In an interview with Bloomberg TV, he differentiated the concepts of "recognition of the results" of the elections and "respect for the will", "Interfax".
"But I can say that as a result of the elections that will be held in May, some people in Ukraine will vote for this or that candidate." Of course, one can respect this position with respect. "Is this an act of recognition? No, it is not," - said Medvedev *.
According to him, the act of recognition by a foreign state is possible only if the results of the elections clearly indicate the will of the overwhelming majority of citizens.
"The Russian Federation has a lot of where and when it participates in monitoring the elections, but, unfortunately, the situation in Ukraine at the moment is not such that we were confident that these elections will be held properly," the Russian prime minister said.
According to him, "if you think legally, legally," it is necessary to understand that these elections are the result of "an unconstitutional change of power."
Medvedev reminded the Russian position: no one from Viktor Yanukovych has been removed from power, there was no impeachment, he did not write a statement of resignation, he is alive and, consequently, he is the president of Ukraine. Therefore, Moscow does not recognize the legitimacy of the acting government in Kiev and the acting president.
"But we understand that there is a parliament that has been elected legitimately, therefore elections are a direct consequence of these events," Medvedev said.
On the other hand, according to him, the elections are some kind of denouement of the situation that has developed.
Medvedev suggested that a positive step would be to elect that candidate who could enjoy the support of all regions of Ukraine.
"But what is the other problem, besides the low legitimacy of these elections?" The problem is that some regions simply do not want to participate in them, and in this case a situation will arise that will be very difficult when, most likely, part of the regions take part in the elections, and some regions simply will not accept them or they will be visited by very few people, "the politician said.
"And then the value, legitimacy of these elections will indeed be questioned," Medvedev said.
