During this press confernce several important announcements were maid.
For example, President Viktor Yushchenko said about the Russian-Ukrainian row:
"The problem is not in the Ukrainian transit, it is in the supply of the necessary amount of gas for European consumers."
Polish President Lech Kaczynski supported his Ukrainian counterpart saying that "the gas crisis that has swept Europe is linked to Russian policies."
Yushchenko also insisted that Ukraine should pay $205 per 1,000 cubic meters for Russian gas. He said that the the average European market price of $450 per 1,000 cubic meters was unacceptable for Ukraine. The country located closest to Russia's gas fields has been offered the highest price in Europe, the Ukrainian leader stated.
Gazprom gave the go-ahead on Tuesday morning to resume gas deliveries via Ukraine, halted January 7 over a dispute with Kiev. However, no Russian gas was delivered through Ukraine to European consumers leading Moscow to accuse Kiev of blocking the gas deliveries.
Yushchenko denied on Tuesday that Kiev was blocking Russian gas transits to Europe or stealing gas, following a failure by Russia to make a test delivery through Ukraine.
