We are not alone in the world, she said

Prime Minister of Ukraine Yulia Tymoshenko claims that European countries support Ukraine in the gas row with Russia.

According to an UNIAN correspondent, Yulia Tymoshenko said this to a government session today.

“As early as this morning, some world countries began to speak against the gas blackmail, which is practiced against Ukraine. We are not alone in the world, everybody understands that Ukraine is being bent to absolutely unprofitable agreements in the gas sphere. But, I believe, this time Ukraine will stand and will produce a result for many years ahead”, Yulia Tymoshenko said.

The Prime Minister also informed she supports permanent contacts with the European Commission, and informs it about all the developments in the sphere of supplying natural gas to Ukraine and the European Union.

“Ukraine is a reliable partner, we do not violate our obligations on the natural gas export to the European countries. This is very important, it means the image of Ukraine, it is the stability of our partners, which we supplies with natural gas through the Ukrainian gas-transport system”, Yulia Tymoshenko stressed.
