Ukraine should do everything in order to stop the energy and economic dependence on Russia, and this should be done in several ways, stated Deputy Prime Minister of Ukraine Pavlo Rozenko in his interview to 112 Ukraine.
According to him, the first step was the establishment of a single market gas price. "Wealthy people will pay for themselves, and the state will help poor people through a system of subsidies, through the social protection system," - said Rozenko.
"The second important point is a sharp reduction in the consumption of gas for all enterprises, institutions and organizations, including the citizens. Our strategic goal is the independence of Ukraine, and tactical - the sharp reduction in gas consumption, - stated the Deputy Prime Minister of Ukraine. - Understanding that gas is expensive, that it's comfortable, but quite expensive source of energy, will stimulate people.”
