The decree was signed on May 14

President of Ukraine Victor Yushchenko has signed decrees on urgent measures concerning the implementation of the Brussels Declaration and the implementation of the Euro-Asian Oil Transport Corridor project on basis of Odessa-Brody oil pipeline.

President’s Commissioner for International Energy Security Bohdan Sokolovskiy has disclosed this to journalists in Zurich.

According to him, both the decrees were signed by the President on May 14.

As UNIAN reported earlier, at his joint press conference with President of Finland Tarja Halonen President Yushchenko informed that he would sign a Presidential Decree on switching Odessa-Brody oil transport pipeline in forward mode. He said that the document would foresee establishment of a working group from representatives of relevant ministries.

Victor Yushchenko also reminded that feasibility study for the Euro-Asian Oil Transport Corridor project on the basis of Odessa-Brody pipeline had been already approved and appropriate Ukrainian-Polish intergovernmental agreement had been signed, therefore all formal decisions oblige the sides to move forward.
