President says Europe may buy Russian gas on Ukrainian-Russian border

KYIV, March 30. Ukrainian President Viktor Yushchenko has said that in the future, Europe may buy Russian gas on the Ukrainian-Russian border. He said this in an interview with the Inter TV channel on Sunday.

“Gas is sold on the first border according to international practice,” Yushchenko said.

Ukraine's gas transit system is a route for gas supplies to Europe. It pumps 20% of the gas being consumed by the European Union, 80% of the Russian gas being exported to the EU, and also the significant amount of central Asian gas.

Russia halted the deliveries of its gas to Europe from January 7 until January 20 due to the Russian-Ukrainian gas row early in January this year.
