Head of Ukraine's Presidential Administration Serhiy Liovochkin has said that Ukraine does not set the goal of gaining any economic benefits from the gas conflict between Russia and Belarus.

He described Belarus as a friend and neighbor of Ukraine, and added that in the current situation Ukraine's goal was not to gain benefits at the expense of "friends and neighbors," but to secure its reputation as a gas transit country that should, "against the background of this conflict," ensure an uninterrupted supply of gas through its gas transport system to Europe.

Liovochkin noted that Ukraine was not a competitor of Belarus in gas supplies to Europe, but most likely a competitor with the countries that agreed to build new gas pipelines, including South Stream.
