Former Prime Minister of Ukraine Yulia Tymoshenko believes that the gas agreements signed in 2009 were correct. She suggested that by 2020 Ukraine would stop using Russian natural gas.
"I believe that the gas agreements were correct," said Tymoshenko.
She also suggested the "Kharkiv agreements" that extended the presence of Russia's Black Sea Fleet in Ukraine should be abolished.
In 2010, in Kharkov, Viktor Yanukovych and Dmitry Medvedev signed the agreement that extended the presence of Russia's Black Sea Fleet in the Crimea for 25 years. In addition, Ukraine received a 30-percent discount on gas.
Noteworthy, it was said on Tuesday, March 4, that Ukraine would be deprived of the discount on Russian gas as early as in April of the current year.
