Foreign minister Leonid Kozhara rules out the possibility of gas war with Russia over $7 billion bill on Ukraine for imports of gas at the end of 2012.

He said this in interview with the Berliner Zeitung German magazine, the text of which is available on the official website of the Foreign Ministry.

In his view, there will be no repeat of the gas conflict of 2008-2009. "Underground storage facilities of Ukraine are full. By the way, we bought Russian gas in Germany, as it’s cheaper there. This is so absurd, isn’t it?" he said.

The minister noted that Ukraine has not yet paid the debt and that he does not know where it originated from.
