Ukrainian citizens must not be affected by the excessive price Ukraine pays for gas, President Viktor Yanukovych told journalists in Kremenchuk today. He reminded that our state is compelled to pay the price for gas highest in Europe.

"We cannot burden the population and utility companies with such a price. The people do not have to pay for the officials’ mistakes. This is my principled position," he said.

Viktor Yanukovych added that the high gas price affected the public debt and financial position of the Naftogaz of Ukraine and the national economy as a whole.
