“Twenty years of Ukraine was on the tip of corruption”: Poroshenko about Russian gas

Ukraine was 20 years of corruption on the needle, as well as in energy dependence from Russia, therefore, did not apply to international courts due to gas prices.

About this Poroshenko said during a visit to Odesa region.

“Twenty years of Ukraine was on the tip of corruption and dependence on the Russian Federation. All the time there were negotiations on gas supplies to Ukraine. All the while, blaming Ukraine – gas, we steal, we transit can not provide. What has happened over the last two years – we are energy independent,” – said Poroshenko.
