Gas transportation system must be ungraded with regard for Russian interests - President

KYIV, March 30. Ukrainian President Viktor Yushchenko has ordered the Cabinet of Ministers to draft a plan of measures for implementation of the agreements with the European Union on modernization of Ukraine's gas transportation system with regard for the interests of the Russian Federation, the presidential press service reported.

Yushchenko noted that the international investment conference on the Ukrainian gas transportation system in Brussels on March 23 had actually summed up the results of the lasting multilateral talks.

He emphasized that effective implementation of the agreements would provide for essential increase in the level of Ukraine's energy security, will become an important move in the context of European integration of the state, and will help towards further endorsement of Ukraine's prestige as that of a reliable partner in the European energy market.

The President is convinced that the creation of a contemporary system for control over the volumes and quality of natural gas supplied to Ukraine and pumped across its territory along the whole perimeter of the Ukrainian border must become one of the priority areas of practical activity.
