President of Ukraine Victor Yushchenko claims that Ukraine must get ready to a new gas price.

According to an UNIAN correspondent, he claimed this to a press conference in the Cherkassy Oblast today.

“The big problem is connected with adapting to a new gas price, and we must get ready to such things – either in a form of the national reserve, or in the form of creating self-sufficient budget relations”, he said.

The President noted that all these issues should be diversified.
