UPD: 05/05/2014 Medvedev considers the price of gas 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, when answering the question, doesn’t it seem “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 mind that only Macedonia pays more than this amount.
“We have already talked about the price formula. This is the price that was laid down in the contract signed in 2009, and this formula calculates everything that is to be delivered. This plus or minus price is comparable to other formulas that are used for deliveries to the European market. Somewhere more, somewhere less, but in general they are in trend. But the price of 268.5 is absolutely preferential, so when they say to us “we are ready to pay at a preferential price”, excuse me, why? Why do other countries pay, why do all countries of the European Union pay a different price? ”Medvedev said.
At the same time, Medvedev did not agree with the journalist, who noted that the European Union 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 from all of Western Europe.
“No, we need to look at how much each country pays. There are countries that pay almost on a par with this one ... It’s a really big price, I don’t argue, but nevertheless there are countries that pay almost at this price, there are countries that pay a little less. But, I emphasize once again, this is an absolutely fair price, which was achieved during the 2009 negotiations. We didn’t bother anyone, they themselves signed the corresponding schedule and signed the contract. By the way, I signed it, I remind you, the current candidate for the presidency, Yulia Tymoshenko, ”Medvedev said.
As reported, in April Gazprom decided to cancel all privileges for gas supplies to Ukraine, explaining this by the fact that the Ukrainian partner is not fulfilling the agreements reached regarding the repayment of arrears for gas supplies. As a result, the price of 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 existence of a debt of $ 2.2 billion for gas deliveries made before April 1, 2014, and is ready to pay it in a 10-day period only after Gazprom has reduced the gas price to $ 268.5 per thousand cubic meters .
On May 13, Gazprom sent an official notification to Naftogaz of Ukraine on the transition to prepayment and issued a preliminary invoice for June in the amount of $ 1.66 billion, based on a contracted supply of 114 million cubic meters per day.
UPD: 05/05/2014 'Medvedev did not give a guarantee of the territorial integrity of Ukraine: We did not assume such obligations'
Russia never undertook obligations to preserve the territorial integrity of Ukraine, and, accordingly, cannot and does not intend to give any guarantees.
This was stated by Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev in an interview with Bloomberg, reports Glavkom
“We should not guarantee anything to anyone, because we never assumed any obligations on this subject, but we proceed from the fact that the main task is to calm the situation in Ukraine, not to guarantee something to someone, but to calm this situation, ”said Medvedev, whose words are quoted by the press service of the Russian government.
“Let our dialogue partners, including the European Union and the United States of America, guarantee 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 drag Ukraine to the North Atlantic Alliance that those people who live in the east will not lose the opportunity to speak Russian, that some crazy Right Sector will not come, will not begin to cut them. Let our partners guarantee something on this subject, ”he added.
UPD: 05/05/2014 Medvedev voiced the Kremlin’s position: Russia is unlikely to recognize the election results in Ukraine
The Prime Minister of the Russian Federation Dmitry Medvedev said that the situation in Ukraine does not give confidence that the presidential election will be held at the proper level.
In an interview with Bloomberg TV, he distinguished between the concept of "recognition of the results" of the election 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, you can respect this position. Is this an act of recognition? No, it’s not,” said Medvedev *.
According to him, an act of recognition by a foreign state is possible only if the election results clearly indicate the will of the vast majority of citizens.
"The Russian Federation, after all, has a lot to do where and when it takes part in monitoring the elections, but, unfortunately, the situation in Ukraine at the moment is not such that we are confident that these elections will be held properly," the Russian prime minister said.
According to him, "if you think legally, legally," you must understand that these elections are the result of an "unconstitutional change of power."
Medvedev reminded the Russian position: Viktor Yanukovych was not removed from power, there was no impeachment, he did not write a letter of resignation, he is alive and, therefore, he is the president of Ukraine. Therefore, Moscow does not recognize the legitimacy of the government in Kiev and the acting president.
"But we understand that there is a parliament that is legitimately elected, so the elections are a direct consequence of these events," Medvedev said.
On the other hand, according to him, the elections are a kind of denouement of the situation that has developed.
Medvedev suggested that the election of a candidate who could enjoy the support of all regions of Ukraine would be a positive step.
“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, some regions will take part in elections, and part of the regions simply will not accept or very few people will come to them, ”the politician said.
"And then the value, legitimacy of these elections will really be called into question," Medvedev stressed.
