Ex-Minister of Fuel and Energy Serhiy Yermilov does not rule out that since the beginning of July, Ukrgasenergo will have substituted Naftogaz and become the main gas provider for Ukrainian consumers. He revealed it in Era Radio live broadcasting.

“I think every possible effort is aimed at substitution of Naftogaz by Ukrgasenergo in all contracts before July 1. It will lead to a loss of a part of the independence (Ukrgasenergo is a joint Ukrainian-Russian venture – edit),” mentions Yermilov. He also opines that the current government of Ukraine and especially Fuel and Energy Ministry of Ukraine are interested parts of this affair.

Yermilov expresses a confidence that Ukraine currently has lost Turkmen gas market in fact. He explains it by ineffectual talks with Turkmenistan and actually breakdown of Turkmen President Niyazov’s visit to Ukraine which had meant failure of new long-term gas supply agreement signing as well. “I suppose the Fuel and Energy Ministry is involved in it,” noted Yermilov.

Ex-Minister Yermilov stated the necessity of immediate participation of the President of Ukraine Victor Yushchenko in the negotiations with Turkmen President Niyazov.
