"Ukraine affirms its commitment to the Energy Community principles and expects its active position in consolidating efforts with the aim of developing clear, transparent and fair rules of the game in the energy sector and achieving a balance of interests between Ukraine as the principal transporter of energy resources on the continent, Russia as their leading supplier, and the EU as the end user," the Foreign Ministry comments on its cooperation with the Energy Community.

"The accession of Ukraine to the Energy Community in 2011 was a conscious and important step of our state in the context of the policy of European integration. Since gaining membership in the Energy Community, Ukraine has consistently fulfilled its obligations in terms of adaptation of national legislation to the norms and rules of the European Union in the energy sector, ensuring stability and security of energy supplies to Europe," the statement reads.
At the same time, the Foreign Ministry notes that Ukraine plans to intensify the interaction with the EU, being the member of the Energy Community, the European Commission, which acts as the coordinator of the Energy Community and other international organizations to provide a constructive dialogue between all the participants of the European energy market.

In this regard, energy and coal industry minister of Ukraine Eduard Stavytsky during the working visit to Brussels is going to meet with EU Commissioner for Energy Günther Oettinger and Energy Charter Secretary General Amb. Urban Rusnák. The parties will discuss the issues of efficiency and prompt attention of the European institutions to the challenges of energy security and diversification of energy supply sources.

"The issue of cooperation in the energy sector will also be a key in the EU-Ukraine summit, to be held on February 25, 2013," the Foreign Ministry summed up.
