Ukraine is ready to buy gas from Kazakhstan without Russia as an intermediary. “So that there will not be an illusion of Russia being charitable and supplying gas to Ukraine…. With the Eurasian Economic Union, Kazakhstan will have access to energy infrastructure and will be able to export its gas anywhere it wants. I stress that Ukraine is ready to buy gas from Kazakhstan without any intermediaries,” Chargé D’Affaires of Ukraine in Kazakhstan Yuri Lazebnik said.


According to Lazebnik, Ukraine will work towards having no more than 30% of its gas supplies from European countries or Russia by 2018. Then Moscow “will stop being the monopolist”.
