The candidate for the President of Ukraine and the leader of the party “Bat’kivschyna”, Yulia Tymoshenko said that for the last five years, Kiev has made regular purchases of gas from Russia through a scheme called “Mars”.
According to Tymoshenko, she is ready to provide documentary evidence that Ukraine bought gas of Russian provenance for all those five years.
This fact is being obscured from the public by the president and the prime minister, who “present Russian gas as European.”
As the former Ukrainian prime minster admitted, for this purpose, special looped pipelines were set up, and gas transported from Russia is being taken, according to documents, “through Mars” and European exchanges in order to “cover tracks.”
