UPD: 05/20/2014 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 significantly higher than for Europe, rather big, but fair.
He said this in an interview with Bloomberg, UNIAN.
In particular, answering the question, does it not seem like it is "a little hard" to increase the price unilaterally from $ 268 per thousand cubic meters to $ 485, Medvedev * said: "No, this is not hard". Medvedev also does not mind 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 to other formulas that are used to supply the European market. Somewhere more, somewhere smaller, but in general they are in trend. But the price is 268.5 - it is absolutely preferential, so when we are told “we are ready to pay at a preferential price”, - excuse me, why? Why do other countries pay, why do all EU countries pay a different price? ”Said Medvedev.
At the same time, Medvedev did not agree with the journalist, who noted that the European Union does not pay an average of 485 dollars per thousand cubic meters, but only about 385 dollars, thus 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 ... This is indeed a rather big price, I don’t argue, but nevertheless there are countries that practically pay this price, there are countries that pay a little less. But, I emphasize once again, this is an absolutely fair price, which was reached during the 2009 negotiations. We did not enslave anyone, they themselves signed the corresponding schedule and signed the contract. By the way, I’ll remind him that I’m the current applicant for the presidential post, Yulia Tymoshenko, ”Medvedev said.
As reported, since April Gazprom decided to cancel all benefits for gas supply to Ukraine, explaining that the Ukrainian partner does not fulfill the agreements reached regarding the repayment of debts for gas supplies. As a result, the price of Russian gas from 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 dollars for gas supplies made before April 1, 2014, and is ready to pay it in a 10-day period only after Gazprom reduces the gas price to 268.5 dollars per thousand cubic meters. .
On May 13, Gazprom sent official notification to Naftogaz of Ukraine about the switch to prepayment and issued a preliminary bill for June in the amount of $ 1.66 billion, based on the contractual volume of deliveries of 114 million cubic meters per day.
UPD: 05/20/2014 'Medvedev did not guarantee the territorial integrity of Ukraine: We did not undertake such obligations'
Russia has never assumed obligations for the preservation of 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 television channel Bloomberg, reports "Glavkom"
“We don’t have to guarantee anything to anyone, because we have never assumed any obligations on this topic, but we assume that the most important task is to calm the situation in Ukraine, not to guarantee something to someone, but to calm this situation, ”said Medvedev, quoted by the press service of the Russian government.
“Let our dialogue partners, including the European Union and the United States of America, guarantee us something - that they will not interfere in the internal affairs of Ukraine, let them guarantee them, our partners in the West, that they will not drag Ukraine into 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 start cutting them. Let our partners guarantee us something on this topic, ”he added.
UPD: 05/20/2014 Medvedev voiced the position of the Kremlin: Russia is unlikely to recognize the results of elections in Ukraine
Prime Minister of the Russian Federation 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 delimited 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, which will be 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 in the case when the election results unequivocally show the will of the overwhelming majority of citizens.
“The Russian Federation is 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 are sure that these elections will be held properly,” the Russian prime minister said.
According to him, “if to think legally, legally,” it is necessary to understand that these elections are the result of the “unconstitutional change of power”.
Medvedev recalled the Russian position: no one withdrew Viktor Yanukovich 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 current government in Kiev and the acting president.
“But we understand that there is a parliament that is elected legitimately, so the elections are a direct consequence of these events,” Medvedev said.
On the other hand, according to him, the elections are a certain outcome 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 some regions simply will not accept or very few people will come to them, "said the politician.
“And then the value, the legitimacy of these elections will indeed be questioned,” Medvedev stressed.
