Yushchenko underlined that Ukrainian gas transport system is a part of the Europea energy market. “Ukrainian gas transport system could work for stability of the European gas market. We’d like the EU to consider the transit, oil and gas possibilities of Ukraine as a constituent of the European common market,” the President said.
